The Microsite Project is a Synod-wide communications project that connects Congregations and Presbyteries to a network that exists within the Synod website structure. The project was launched in 2016.
Congregations involved in the project gain access and training to set up an easy-to-use website which becomes part of a wider network of sites, making local Uniting Churches more visible on search engines.
Many Churches have websites they have not been able to maintain or volunteers have moved on from their Congregations leaving them with a website that they are unable, or don’t have the skills to maintain.
The Microsite Project is designed to cater to smaller Congregations that would like to have a website, but do not know where to start.
Training is done in one full day, bootcamp-style with participants bringing their own device and leaving the training with a fully-functioning website.
Training also includes access to information about social media and how to use it effectively in conjunction with congregations website presence.
