It was way back in 2008 that Grace Baptist Trust Corporation first came to me asking for a web site. The site was to do a couple of things: firstly to showcase the projects that GBTC had assisted with over the years, secondly it was to be a resource for those looking for advice in managing their church estate.
The original site has been added to through the years, both in terms of resources and in new projects, categorised by year. With the rapidly changing world of IT use, and particularly the prevalence of mobile devices it was time for a revamp. A brand new template was designed that would be a fresh look whilst maintaining the original logo. The home page was updated to add some chunky buttons to click through for the main items, with the rest of the navigation placed in the menu bar.
All the pages were then updated to use the new style, and where possible, better images were used to replace the smaller ones used in the original site. All in all, the new site contains the same information in a fresher, mobile friendly package that should enhance GBTC’s presence on the web and make it easier for churches to find the resources that they need.
