The OpenChurch distribution is for churches and ministries. It is a flexible platform with common features for churches that can help streamline development of these websites.
Introducing OpenChurch 2x!
We are happy to announce that OpenChurch has been completely re-tooled in version 2x, now available to download as a dev release! OpenChurch is now built on top of the Panopoly distribution which includes many admin enhancements. OpenChurch is now fully responsive with easy color configuration using the color module (@see screenshots). OpenChurch is now even easier to configure and use.
Note: An upgrade path for OpenChurch 2x is currently in progress. Please test 2x-dev and file issues in the issue queue to help us get out a stable release. Thanks!
