Ezekiel Church WordPress Theme
Ezekiel is a church WordPress theme with many church-specific features. The design is rugged with real-world elements for a modern look. This theme can be used to setup a full-featured church website that is easy to update. All content can be managed via the admin interface without technical expertise. Adding photos, sermons, events, news, etc. is just a matter of filling out and submitting forms.
Features for this theme include a photo slider on the homepage, photo albums, news/announcements, sermons that can be listened to online or downloaded, an events section and social media icons (Facebook and Twitter). There are also many places to publish your church's location, times and contact information (a contact form is included). Ezekiel is also mobile-friendly so it should work well on the iPhone and other mobile devices.
We would give this theme "six stars" out of five for being the most complete niche church theme to date.
