Review : Calvary theme by ChurchThemes.net is a best premium church WordPress theme that is clean and visually improved with advanced design. The Calvary theme is made of dark earth-stone type color supported by textures to make website look clean and attractive. Font style and color combination of default style will make your site look easily readable. The core features of this theme includes media manager (video, photo), members directory, donation section, service page.
Sermon Archives Page : Calvary WordPress Theme comes packed with fully multimedia supported sermon page where user will find different search options to filter video, audio, guides, pod-casting etc. The ready to use sermon post format is good part of the theme and it can simplify the process of listing sermons with multimedia attachments. Most of the church website users enjoy this feature and appreciate developers for providing it in user friendly design.
Giving Widget : Many people take part in the charity work and make donation when visit church but this concept is now extended with the introduction of Calvary theme. This feature don’t ask for manual coding work and no need to use third party plugin. Church Themes team team has developed ready to use “Donation” widget, the administrator will just have to put their PayPal email and here it is done. All donations will be collection on the PayPal account connected with “Giving widget”. The information typed on this widget can be customized in your own way, like you can write some message that would encourage follower to take part in holy donation.
Members Category Page : Calvary Church WordPress theme has a special directory page to display information about all people who are connected to church. You can make category wise biography listings for pastors, group leaders, staff members. The profile of these members can be made using members post type where you are given all the options to add social links, contact, email, personal details, work details and much more.
Multiple Locations and Service Listings : Calvary theme has special service and location manager which enables you to create multiple entries for the different types of services being held on weekly or monthly. Also you can make multiple events listing to display location of different events, for e.g. there are many church groups who held events in the different area every month to increase the followers from the entire region.
The Calvary WordPress theme is supported by woody style menu background and wide slideshow panel that runs smoothly. The special widget is available for donation, recent blog news so that visitors can still notice those elements even if they are not on the homepage. I would strongly suggest Calvary church theme to all churches who want to manage website themselves to save time and money spend to hire web master.
