Case Study: New Interest in The Reformed Church

The Reformed Church in the Swiss canton of Lucerne is an institution recognised under public law. It unites all Reformed people living in the canton of Lucerne, currently around 40’000 people in ten parishes. Its mission is to bear witness to the Protestant faith in word and deed.

Business Needs

The new website is intended to appeal to the target groups and bring the topics of religion and church closer to a broad public. It arouses interest, draws attention to events and offers and provides users with the right information quickly and easily. As a platform for exchange and dialogue, it brings people together and addresses the role of Protestantism in current affairs. A further aim was to consider the democratic organisation of the Reformed Church and to carry out the projects in such a way that as many committed people and employees of the parishes as possible could contribute their experiences, opinions and inputs.

Pimcore Solution

„The website meets all modern requirements and offers exciting technical features.“

In two preliminary projects, an extensive analysis was carried out, which examined the market environment, included interviews with users and dealt with the target group. From this, concrete requirements for the website were derived.

Finally, a comprehensive concept was developed, which now bundles all parishes in one website – previously they were linked to each other on different websites. The new website meets all modern requirements, puts more emphasis on pictures and shows in a clear way how lively life is in the parishes. The website also offers many exciting technical features, such as a service planner or an event module with news plugin. All website data can be output and processed in a variety of ways.

Business Results

The Reformed Church of Lucerne now has an optically modern and user-friendly website that displays content optimally on all devices. The target groups are specifically addressed and perfectly guided through the website thanks to the usability concept. Maintenance and input of website data are now significantly simplified. Technically, there is a state-of-the-art website, for which further developments and links with other systems are also conceivable, e.g. an expansion in the direction of cross-media or the connection with print products. More than 40 employees of the Reformed Church in the canton of Lucerne were trained in the use of the system at the end of the project.
