Where Web, Tech & Worship Meet!
IT4Worship logo and tagline

Does This Sound Familiar?

You lead a small to medium-sized church with a desire to reach out to the wider community.

You know that technology is needed.

You know that technology in inexperienced hands can be more challenging than no technology at all.

You know you need a trusted source of Web, IT, Audio and Video skills and advice

About Our Clients

Our clients’ needs range from the simple to the highly complex.

Everything from how to set up an congregational email distribution list to creating an engaging church website to integrating online event registration into the church website is within the scope.

There can also be audiovisual needs like regaining control of the sound system or determining the best product to project slides at the Sunday worship service.

Our Company

IT4Worship was founded to meet the needs of small and medium-sized churches for technology advice and skills when it was not available from congregational volunteers.

While that help could take many forms - websites, information and network technology, training or some combination of the above - it  was clear that church administration and worship were the areas most impacted by a lack of technological skills.

And the financial reality of church budget constraints.

What our clients are saying...

Wayne Sankarlal created our website at St.David's Presbyterian Church on Danforth Rd. Scarborough (phone 416-267-7897). He did an outstanding job.  He also provided training to staff and excellent followup services throughout.

- Rev. Jacques Nel, St. David's Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Ontario

I could have built our website and done a reasonable job. Almost every congregation has someone who could. However, there's already more than enough work to go around. IT4Worship did a great job of listening to our needs, asking us good questions, and then turning out a web presence that meets what we need. The ongoing support for our website content writers is quick and thorough. IT4Worship keeps us regularly informed on the progress of security updates and on any work that might affect people accessing our site. IT4Worship is definitely worth considering as you seek new ways to let the world know about your community of faith.

Rev. Matthew Sams Clerk of Session, Pickering Presbytery, Ontario

I have been blessed by the great gifts that Wayne has given on several occasions;  A short time ago I seemed to be plagued by a message that seemed to come up on my computerscreen... Daily! Wayne eliminated it  remotely. He knows computers well. His costs are reasonable, and when he does anything he explains what he has done in layman's terms- I need all the help I can get! I would, without hesitation, recommend his services. I feel secure knowing that Wayne is only a phone call away! Wayne also looks after our church's internet and computer needs!
Phillip J. Robillard, Minister - Fallingbrook Presbyterian Church, Toronto, Ontario
I would like to recommend Wayne Sankarial for help with your website. Wayne listened carefully to what we hoped to do and then followed through with some exciting changes. He is very well versed in what attracts attention and is more than willing to be a hands on helper to get you going.  We are thrilled with our changes and happy to share his expertise with others.
 
Rev. Barb Molengraaf,  St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Bramalea-Brampton.
We recently contracted IT4Worship to give our church website a ‘facelift’. We are thrilled with the end results! Wayne was knowledgeable, efficient, available, and listened to our unique needs as a church. He worked with us to meet the goals we had in mind within a short time span. We would definitely work with this company again.”

Rev. Tobey Boyer, Knox-Alliston Presbyterian Church, Alliston, Ontario

I would like to thank Wayne for all the support to questions I have. He is always eager to find a solution to the problems I present. Even though Wayne has been asked many questions over and over, he never makes you feel you are a burden. I would definitely recommend Wayne for any of your IT requirements.

Blair Banks, Web Coordinator, Pickering Presbytery

Open or Closed?

Mar 14, 2017

  The level of welcome we offer on our websites  is always an interesting discussion that quickly boils down to our basic beliefs around security.  This week I’m been particularly reminded of this as I’ve been installing security software and SSL certificates on a number of the sites that I’ve built and manage for clients.…

Truth or Fact or Not?

Jan 25, 2017

  It seems pretty timely to talk about facts and alternative facts. In our case, those emails that you receive from various companies telling you that your church’s domain is about to expire. Accompanying these “helpful” reminders are usually convenient forms for you to fill out to prevent the expiry of the domain (so long…

TechSoup Canada

Jul 15, 2016

TechSoup Canada? Never heard of it? The truth is that until 4 years ago I had never heard of them either. But then I was asked to obtain a license for the Microsoft Office suite of products for a client. I went the usual route to the local big box electronics store and got the…

Formatting the HTML Way

Jun 17, 2016

In today’s blog we’ll discuss formatting text in HTML. If you want to repeatedly format large amounts of text, then you should use CSS (a topic for another day), however if you want to emphasize a few words in a sentence or paragraph then what follows is the way to go. In all the examples…

Space…(ing)

Jun 1, 2016

The use of space on a web page is needed to properly balance the elements on the page. Too little space and the page will seem overcrowded and “busy” while too much space leaves the impression that there is little worth saying. I’m using space here to mean a couple of things. It can be…

Ransomware…late breaking news!

May 18, 2016

Your first question might be what is ransomware? And its a good question, because ransomware is the latest of malicious practices appearing on the internet. Despite my previous assertion that we would go a little deeper into WordPress and this post is most decidedly not about WordPress. The reason for the diversion came in the…

School is in Session…w3school

May 13, 2016

As I’d mentioned in the last post, we’re going to take a more WordPress and website-specific approach over the next little while. A website, WordPress or otherwise, is composed of a minimum of three technologies that work cooperatively to generate what you see and interact with in your web browser. These three are HTML, CSS…

Time for a little test…and reward!

May 4, 2016

There really isn’t a test…but there really is a reward! I did think though that this would be a good time to recap the 12 posts that have appeared here over the past 4 months. I’m averaging 3 per month but my output has been down in the last couple of month or so due…

Commenting in not on your website…

Apr 15, 2016

Commenting is one of the best things that you can do for your church website and for those who take on the mantle of web aficionado when you are ready to pass it on. In this context, commenting is all about putting short notes into your web pages to help guide new volunteers or just…

Is Geomapping for you?

Mar 16, 2016

Geomapping is the process of taking information with a location component and creating a map from that information. At first blush you may say, “Why would a church want or need to geomap anything?” The truth is that every church has a rich source of geomapping data and about 100% of them call it the…
