Two cons with free hosting: 1.) As far as uptime and service, you get what you pay for and, 2.) Typically you have to run ads so you need to make sure that ads will not be contradictory to your church's beliefs (i.e gambling, porno, etc.).

That being said it just cam to mind that WoW Directory is offering free hosting so long as you link back to their directory. That could be a good option for you. See http://www.wowdirectory.com/freehosting.htm for more info.

Well the free web hosting service I use is www.zoomshare.com . I found it looking for a free webpage too.

I think it would be quite good as a starter page for your church. It allows you 4 different pages for the free level. Those pages are a general description, links, news, and photos. THey can be customized a certain amount. I have no banner or pop up adds on my page other than a couple that I have added to promote business. You may also choose the name of your site and the address that refers to it. In my cases I chose tobytoby which is in honor of a beloved pet.

Please go check it out. I really think this might be something like you are looking for.
