Crossway is a large multi-campus church in the suburbs of Melbourne. They’re blessed with an amazing creative team working on video, printed visuals, art direction and more – but wanted to pull it all together in a high quality website to match.
It has been a great pleasure to work alongside Steve Fogg and his amazing team on this project – and we’re very excited with the final product. The site is built on WordPress, which afforded us a lot of flexibility making different elements of the site content editable by the staff.
To start with – the site is built on an underlying framework which is shared with Crossway Lifecare (a ministry of Crossway). This ensures that both sites maintain a consistent overall style and layout, while giving flexibility for them to have different design elements so they stand apart.
The site is developed to be responsive – so it works beautifully on screens of any size. It’s also been built mobile-first, meaning it loads as quick as possible for smaller screens – then adds complexity for devices with larger screens.
The site is set up to manage all of Crossways sermons each week from across their campuses. Sermons are grouped into series, and can handle video and audio, as well as transcripts and other text content.
Using WordPress allowed us to attach any piece of content with a particular group in the church (like youth, mums or lifegroups). This means that content like events, news and more can be automatically displayed on the appropriate page.
Throughout the site there are a number of pages that have been custom designed in order to stand out!
