The City is the best known and most widely used church-focused social community with over 600 churches and over 200,000 people engaged nationwide.

SkyBlueCanvas is a lightweight, open source CMS written in PHP that is specifically built for small sites.

The web based CMS, Church Web Works, has kicked-off 2011 with version 5.
Church Web Works offers many robust features while remaining relatively easy to manipulate from the back-end.
