Methodist Central Hall Westminster’s website (methodist-central-hall.org.uk) receives over 250,000 views a month and is an integral part of the Churches Digital Outreach Ministry. MCHW is one of the few churches in the UK to have a had a Digital Outreach mission for over 5 years, and they are delighted to be joining forces with christianity.org.uk a freshly designed website which is to be launched on Thursday, 24th January 2020.
Christianity.org.uk is a website run by the Christian Enquiry Agency, a non-denominational organisation founded by Churches together in England. Christianity.org.uk aims to reflect a conventional, moderate Christian viewpoint. Where Christians disagree on some issues, it attempts to reflect those differences fairly.
Revd Dr Martyn Atkins, Superintendent Minister at MCHW said, ‘Digital ministry is becoming a key element in the Christian mission, and I wholeheartedly support this partnership which promises to be of benefit to both CEA and MCHW.’
Dan Forshaw, Communications and Digital Media Co-Ordinator for Methodist Central Hall Westminster said, ‘Our website very much serves as a virtual ‘Church Noticeboard’ letting visitors know about our global Christian family, our historic building and the opportunity to listen to our sermons and podcast. However, it’s a tough ask for a church website to provide everything that someone seeking more information about the Christian faith might expect to find, therefore I’m delighted that at MCHW we are able to partner with christianity.org.uk and their new website for 2020. A big positive for us is that christianty.org.uk have many well written in-depth articles on the Christian faith and a real Christian available for seekers to chat with, rather than a chat bot.’
Revd Dr Jo Cox-Darling, Chair of the CEA said, ‘We are delighted that a prominent church like Methodist Central Hall Westminster is partnering with us at Christianity.org.uk. Churches up and down the country use our URL on their websites, banners and fliers. We are hoping that people will see churches like MCHW taking up this great opportunity, and will use our URL for free on their own materials too.’
