[If you came here directly from a search engine, welcome. This is not a real church web site. It is an example, which you may use as a template. (Or, if you catch me in a good mood, I can copy and alter it for you, if you give me the data and some decent pictures. You'll have to find your own host, though.) It is a demonstration connected to my page on Church Web Site Design.]

You can cobble a map up in Paint:

Map to our church

Or you can link to a web page. The two best places to link for maps are Google Maps and MapQuest. Both of them allow you to enter an address, set the zoom level, then click on "Link to this map". When you do, they format HTML for you.

I used both services to look up my library, the Stanislaus County Free Library at 1600 "I" Street, Modesto California. Here are the links so you can see that they work. I added "target=_blank" to open a new page. Normally, opening a new page is not a good idea, because it reminds people of pop-up advertisements.

Demo: SCFL via Google Maps.

You should have directions in words, for people who don't like to read maps, instructions about public transit, if there is any, parking instructions, and so on.

This is a good place for a picture of your church from the street, so people know what to look for.
