EC version three
ExploreChurches was expanded to include a booking module, thanks to a project funded by VisitBritain. Providers, including churches, can now create and promote Experiences via the website. Tour operators and individuals can create an account, choose favourites and book.
EC version two
ExploreChurches was rebuilt, with a brighter, fresher design in the summer of 2018. We also added more content types, including trails, events and the ability to add sponsorship or advertising in order to help with the financial sustainability of the site. We launched with lots of new content in September 2018, including adding an events calendar. We have also added extra content types to church pages, enabling you to upload guidebooks or leaflets, list regular events and services and more detailed facilities tags.
EC version one
ExploreChurches first launched in November 2016. In the following 18 months we uploaded over 2000 churches and around 45 themed lists. The website attracted around 5000 visitors per month and we engaged with around 45000 people per month on social media
