#FollowTheStar via A Church Near You

With less than two weeks until Christmas, the A Church Near You website is gearing up for the millions of page views that it will receive as we draw closer to Christmas Day.

The site has already received more than 480,000 page views this month from members of the public looking for local church services and events. 

It currently has just 24,000 Christmas services and events tagged on the site and expect many more people to use the site this year. The Church of England will be directing lots of traffic to the site from the #FollowTheStar social media campaign.

Only Christmas services tagged using the Christmas tags on ACNY will appear during December in the search from the home page  – make sure you’ve tagged your services using the Christmas-related tags. Find out how here. Please add yours today and check existing services and events to ensure people can find your church this Christmas.

As 76 per cent of people using A Church Near You are doing so for the first time, December is a huge opportunity to welcome new people into your church to take the Advent journey and celebrate the joy of Christmas.

Over the last 30 days, ACNY has had more 1,200,000-page views from more than 200,000 visitors. This will massively increase over the coming weeks – make the most of this by ensuring your church is seen this Christmas.

If you need some help accessing ACNY, adding events or using the tags, visit the Editor Help Centre here.
