Website Design & Development

The Brief:

The Cathedral Church of Our Lady’s Flight into Egypt in Cape Town is intimately associated with the history and development of the Roman Catholic Church in Southern Africa over 175 years. As with many churches, they too are needing to adapt and “move with the times” to better engage with the people in their community. Airborne was approached to guide St Mary’s Cathedral into the digital age without losing sight of their traditions and ethos that the faith upholds.

The Result:

The parish was extremely committed to connecting with their digitally savvy congregation. This commitment was evident in their proactive gathering of content which streamlined development. 

The final design was driven by the congregation and the broader community’s ever-growing need to have access to important information. This includes weekly church notices, mass times and ongoing activities within the church. The website ensures the congregation has access to important life milestones such as baptism and marriage.

“When we undertook to update our parish website almost two years ago, it was the vision of myself and the administration staff at the Cathedral that the new website be contemporary and engaging with those who visit the website. In addition we wanted it to more interactive and become a tool of communication not only with the parishes but the world at large.

For almost a year and a half, this remained only a vision until we contacted Airborne Experience to aid us in achieving our vision. We are sincerely grateful and appreciative for the indefatigable professionalism with which they tackled our requests and aiding us in the design and launching of our new website.

We would have no qualms about recommending Airborne Experience to others, in fact, we have done so already since we have had such wonderful feedback from those that have visited our new website. Wishing you all at Airborne Experience much success in all your endeavours and projects.

Yours most sincerely,”- The Very Reverend Rohan Smuts, The Administrator, The Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lady of the Flight into Egypt
