This website is aimed so that all places of worship and venues can have a free listing, which covers all the basic information people want to know. There is also a ‘featured’ listing which has more options for places that want to share more – this helps to pay the running costs (reviewing entries, researching new ones, etc).
Christian Venues came about to help in three areas:
- finding and hiring local quality Christian venues
- helping churches especially to make more income
- making it easy to find a church, regardless of denomination
Of course, we’re aware there are already some solutions out there, like the well known A Church Near You for the Church of England, but not all different congregations are as well served. Likewise many venues are on other websites, but not collated together making it easy to find all the details.
The local churches are helping connect Christian Venues with venues and enabling the research through funding. This is an ongoing project as we’re trying to bring a critical mass to the site, ensuring there are enough venues to meet all needs and partnering with local Christian contacts is vital. Please contact us if you can be involved with contacts or research.
freshSPRING makes graphics, marketing and websites for charities, churches and small business as a non-profit. Experience with clients, as a trustee and finding a church led to the three areas above being identified as areas of need.
Support Christian Venues
If you’re interested in supporting Christian Venues financially (with research and reaching more people) then you can make a donation by card through PayPal, or contact us if you’d like to donate via bank transfer or cheque.
This is a non-profit project administered as part of freshSPRING (a non-profit) that will hopefully be self-sustaining in future through features profiles, adverts, etc. All donations will be used to make this the case.
