The First Church of Christ, Scientist
The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston, Massachusetts is the world headquarters of the Christian Science Church. After a thorough search, the Church contacted us to help them move their existing Mary Baker Eddy Library website from Drupal over to WordPress. The Church was moving to WordPress for all of their many websites, and wanted a consistent platform. We were able to reproduce the design and layout from the Drupal site and worked with them to make improvements along the way. Since then, we’ve built and supported several internal websites for the Church, as well as providing a robust hosting platform. We continue to work with the Church for their ongoing needs.
