There is a feature that almost every church has on their website, is difficult to navigate and doesn’t integrate into other services easily. This feature is a calendar or listing of events. Usually using the features built into a CMS or other platform on your website integrate well and provide an adequate user experience, however most calendars do not. Services like Google Calendar allow you to embed a calendar easily into your website.
On a church website the calendar is the most updated page. With a Google Calendar embedded on your page, staff do not need to learn how to update calendars in your CMS, but can use the very user friendly interface of Google Calendar. In fact, if your church uses Google Apps then they will be used to using the calendar since they update it the same as their calendar and anyone can be delegated to make changes to the calendar. Allow, it’s easy to print the calendar, and can be subscribed to through Microsoft Exchange and all smart phones.
