What is Webflow?

May 6, 2024

There are many web platforms that are available to host your church website, but which one should you choose? In this article, we will discuss the pros and cons of using Webflow. So you can understand if it’s a good fit for your church website.

First, What is Webflow?

In simple terms, Webflow is a platform that allows users to design, build, and launch responsive websites visually, without writing code. It combines the flexibility of a traditional website builder with the control and customization of a content management system (CMS).

Before Webflow, in order to make a website you had two options:

  1. Have a developer write the code from scratch (very, very expensive and hard to maintain)
  2. Use a templated, website builder (very limited design and functionality)

But with Webflow, developers have the ability to create a highly customized website in a more efficient way, while allowing users to updated their website much more seamlessly.

Why We Recommend Webflow for Churches:

Complete Customization

Your church is unique, your website should be too. Most website platforms rely on pre-built templates that restrict your ability to have a website that truly reflects your church. With Webflow, we have complete control over the design and development of your church website. This gives us the ability to tailor your website both visually and functionally just for your church.

A Powerful CMS

With Webflow’s powerful CMS feature, you can manage sermons, events, and more on your website without any technical experience.

Secure Hosting and Security

All websites built on Webflow are hosted on their secure servers, which means your church doesn’t have to worry about managing hosting or dealing with security concerns.

No Plugins Necessary

Webflow doesn’t require plugins to make a functional church website. This helps create a more stable website compared to platforms like Wordpress — we’ve heard countless stories of broken church websites from updating plugins on Wordpress. Ouch.

Great for SEO

Webflow is built to optimize your church’s SEO efforts so your church website is discoverable by those searching in your area. It provides control over SEO meta tags, markup, indexing rules, 301 redirects, and more. Additionally, it allows you to input image alt-tags to make sure your website is accessible for those who are visually impaired.

Immersive User Experience

At Sunday Best, we call this our secret sauce. Webflow allows us to create special, interactive elements that increase engagement for users. This helps create a lasting impression on visitors and will lead to them saying “WOW”.

A few more things to note about Webflow

Some Technical Experience is Required for Certain Changes

Since Webflow is a powerful tool, it requires some technical experience in order to manage certain parts of your website. You can manage many of the things on your website through Webflow’s CMS and editor features. But certain things like creating new pages or sections on a page will require a trained developer.

A site plan is required

In order to use Webflow, a site plan is required. Most churches will need the CMS plan which is $23 per month when billed yearly. This site plan includes hosting for your church website as well.


While Webflow might not be a great fit for every church, we're confident it's the best web platform for any medium to large sized church. Webflow's customization, CMS, and fantastic security unlocks your ability to create a church website that will bring more people to your church on Sunday.
