We've updated AChurchNearYou.com to make it even easier for visitors to find Advent and Christmas services.
Add and tag your services
If you haven't already, now is the perfect time to list your services and events, using the tag 'Advent' or 'Christmas'. You can also use the tags 'Christmas Eve', 'Christmas carols', 'Crib/nativity', 'Christingle' and 'Mulled wine' or 'Mince pies' to help people find the right service for them.
As well as a 'Follow the Star' makeover for the main homepage, the changes are:
- At AChurchNearYou.com/christmas visitors can refine their search using seasonal tags.
- On your local church homepage, there is now a panel highlighting your tagged Advent and Christmas events, plus a snowy background.
- New 'invite a friend' button on your services and events. Plus, if you share an Advent or Christmas event via Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp using the share buttons, it will share with a welcoming 'You're invited' graphic.
- Improved 'add to calendar' button.
- Improved location information on service and event entries and your homepage - your church address shown in full with postcode.
- We are automatically tagging any one-off events listed for 24 or 25 December with a 'Christmas' tag, to help your community find services this December.
