Roxbury Church of Christ

I found this site while digging around the portfolio of Church Brilliance. I was immediately struck by its bold use of imagery. The large photo on the main page, along with the scribbled arrows, helps give it a welcoming personal touch. The colors are vibrant throughout, grabbing your attention, and helping the text to jump off the page. I enjoy the tag-line too: “Contagious Christianity.”
I like that the pertinent information is one of the first things you see on the site: service times and a mission statement. There is also the option to subscribe to the email newsletter, helping to keep the congregation informed. The site navigation could be a little more prominent, but its relative subtleness is made up for by the location on the page. They also promote a good message:
We want you to know up front that we are not a perfect church because we are made up of imperfect people. The good news is, God loves imperfect people, and we love imperfect people. That’s what makes our fellowship so special. Everyone is welcome!
This personal feel is continued throughout, especially on their staff page. This has to be one of the more unique “About Us” pages that I’ve seen. Full-height photos of are provided, including the guitar-playing pastor. While some might call this cheezy, this type of candid honesty helps to lend tangible vulnerability. This is important for churches, especially online, where the temptation is often to convey it as an institution rather than a group of people.
Overall, Sean Alsobrooks has done a great job with this site. It portrays a real church that is full of genuine humanity, seeking to serve the Lord.
