    Hello Sunita!

    I’m thinking about creating a church site based on theme grill’s Himalaya theme. I think it would work and look especially good, but I haven’t seen any created with that base. Do you have any ideas what would/should stop me from building off of it?

    Thanks for your time

      Hi Matthew,
      You can surely build a church website using Himalayas theme. Although it may lack some functionalities like sermon player, event calendar etc., you can use plugins for all those features and functionalities. Please check the Himalayas theme documentation once, it may help you: https://docs.themegrill.com/himalayas/
