Faith 2012 is a WordPress theme built with the needs of congregations of all types in mind. Most WordPress themes are for businesses, magazines, news or personal blogging sites. No matter how attractive, they can be an enormous challenge to adapt to a congregation unless you have an experienced WordPress developer at your disposal. Many congregations don’t. Hence this theme.
I’ve structured it to be highly adaptable. You can add your own header photos (customizing down to the page level if you wish), change the background, revamp the sidebars and adapt the main menu according to the specific requirements of your community. For details on how to use it, please see the documentation.
It comes in two versions. Originally I developed this theme for my denomination and recently have adapted it to a more generic theme that should work for any religious community.
This is the basic theme, version 2.2.1, updated July 17, 2012.
This adaptation is for Unitarian Universalists (also version 2.2.1, updated July 17, 2012). The primary difference is the addition of chalices in the header and footer.
For those unaccustomed to installing a WordPress theme, here are basic instructions. (Please note, this cannot be done on a WordPress.com site. You must use a different web host.)
Thanks to the wonderful members of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Bowling Green, who made the development of this theme possible.
