About PCCWeb

PCCWeb is an exciting new inititative from the Communications Office of The Presbyterian Church in Canada.

Based on the popular WordPress platform, PCCWeb was conceived to provide simple, free web presence for congregations and ministries that don’t have web expertise (or funding for it) at their disposal. The tools necessary for creating a modern website are out there, and we bring them to you in a neat package.

The websites provided through PCCWeb are completely free of charge and are funded through gifts to Presbyterians Sharing.

PCCWeb is…

  • Simple. It may not have all the bells and whistles, but PCCWeb can give your congregation/ministry a simple, easily-maintainable web presence.
  • Easy. The backend administration interface is intuitive and clear.
  • A creative process. Creating a website—even a simple website—can take time. We try to make the process simple and straightforward, but some time for ‘tweaking’ will be necessary.
  • A chance to learn a bit about websites. Even with the simple, back-end administration interface, there’s plenty of opportunity to learn. You can be as hands-on or hands-off as you want to be.
  • Well supported. With millions of users, WordPress has one of the biggest and best development communities on the planet. Combine that with helpful, accessible in-house administrators in the Communications Office, and you’ll never have a question go unanswered or problem unaddressed.

  1. I’m an elder with the St. Andrew’s Winnipeg church and our session wants to use the PCC server to host our website.

    What is required in order to move our website to the PCC’s server?

    We’re also creating a banner and other advertising materials, and we’d like to have a QR code with the St. Andrew’s URL on it so people can have an easier time finding our soon-to-be updated website. I’d like to know if we would be assigned a new URL or if we can use the same URL as we have now (I need to let the graphics designer know this as soon as possible).

    Thank you,

  2. Hi David,

    The free hosting service we’re offering allows congregations to set up a website using the WordPress content management system (CMS). If you already have a domain name we work with you so you can keep your domain name and not have to have a subdomain of pccweb.ca. You would be building your website on this CMS and not transferring or uploading your existing website to our server. The hosting is a locked down network shared by many congregations. You have the option to change your theme and add whatever content suitable to your congregation however, you will not have access to the background WordPress code, just the page content editor. There are many free QR code generators on the internet such as http://www.qurify.com that you can use to create your QR code.

    Please feel free to respond if you have further questions.
