Now that we are well into the information age, having a website for any kind of entity is almost essential in order to conform with the modern society.

If your church is small, you don\’t need a full-blown website, there are other solutions that can suit your needs, which I may describe in a later article. This article is mainly for churches or people that engage in studying about the faith of Tenrikyo.

Read on to find out.
