A new Kadence Theme starter template is here to offer a simple way for churches to get online with a beautiful website. The new Church starter template harnesses the power of Kadence Theme and Kadence Blocks, along with integration with The Events Calendar and GiveWP, to simplify events and online giving for your church family.
Why Choose Kadence Theme For Your Church Website
Keeping a church running smoothly can be a challenge even for the largest administration. Most churches are lucky to have a couple of volunteers who try to keep things in order. The idea of adding a website that has to be built and maintained can overwhelm volunteers and even stress the limited resources of a large administration.
Kadence Theme not only makes it simple to build out your website, but with the new Church starter template, events and giving are a snap as well.
