New Website: Pictures, Permissions and Content

Help us Build a New Website!
Trinity’s website is not bad, but it’s a bit old, a bit crowded and a bit unresponsive. So we’re in the process of building a new site that will give our online presence a fresh, clean, contemporary look.
We’ve invested a bunch of hours on the background work and architecture for the new site. Here’s an example of what the home page might look like on your laptop:

And on your iPhone:

(Note that this is a rough draft – we expect it to change)

But we need your help in three ways: pictures, permissions and content.

Pictures: One of the best things a church website can do is to use good pictures of real people. Our new website will have information on upcoming events and on all the groups that meet on Sunday and through the week. We could really use some pictures of these things. So here’s the big ask: next time you are at a Sunday School class, a home group, a Bible Study or another Trinity event take 10 pictures and upload them to Bob’s google account. We will cull, edit and use these pictures to make the best website we’ve ever had

Here’s the link:

(2) Permissions: Officially we’re not supposed to put your picture on the website without your permission. This is for your privacy and safety. We really hope you’ll be alright with us using your picture. Just fill out the form (or forms) below and we’ll keep it in our records. You can also fill this out on Sunday Morning if you prefer.

(3) Content: Even more than pictures, we need to have good content on the site and get it right. If you are a Sunday School teacher, small group leader or host, or help lead any kind of group or event, we would like you to check the content on the new site as soon as it goes up and get back to us quickly with questions, comments and suggestions, including typographical, grammatical and editorial suggestions. If you would like to look at the content for your group or event in advance, just contact Bob and he will tell you how!
