Church123 obviously gears toward a specific audience, so many users won’t need its services. But for churches that need a website, Church123 offers a potential solution, though one that doesn’t have many positives.
On the plus side, there are over 200 templates from which to choose. On the downside, none of them are attractive or mobile responsive. The Church123 editing environment is also ugly and appears to have not been updated for at least a decade. Editing is fairly straightforward – not because it’s easy but because there are very few options available regarding customizing the template you choose.
The support provided by Church123 is good – you can submit questions via email or access phone-based support, which is a nice feature. Another positive feature is that all sites come with up to 50 email addresses, so long as you purchase a domain name too. Unfortunately, you cannot download your site, nor is there the option to add e-commerce to the site, although that likely isn’t a need for most churches.
All told, Church123 just doesn’t seem worth the $370/year fee. In fact, you can create a better-looking website with more functionalities by using a free WordPress template. That’s not a very ringing endorsement of Church123.
