Our new Website Update section has come alive! to see past archive of updates see here
Logo - The logo on the bookings website was a lot clearer than the one on the main website so I have made the logo as sharp as the one on the bookings site. the old logo was a bit grainy and was compressed too much so now we have a striking logo to welcome visitors + I've added the word Centre.
Old Sermons - I posted a while back saying I was starting to transfer old sermons to the new website and though I have been doing one stage of it the second stage will see it actually appearing on the website and I am optimistic that this will be done by the new year! -
Twitter - the mint twitter is very active at the moment and I try to post out services and events happening at the mint on a regular basis most of the time I send these out time delayed so I do a bunch of tweets to send out scheduled. if you are interested in the twitter feed you don't have to be a account holder to look at the feed just look at the bottom of the website or look at the twitter page.
Twitter Remembrance Service
Nothing really to do with the website but is Merthodist! -today I took part in a Twitter remembrance service.
Extract taken from the BBC News
"The idea came from James Thomas, a music graduate from Cardiff, who wanted to help people who might not usually attend traditional services, but who wanted to mark Armistice Day.
James, who will tweet under the name @Poppy_Tweet, is a member of the Methodist Church but has stressed that the service is open to people of all faiths.
At 10:15 GMT on Friday, a traditional order of service will be gradually sent out in the form of prepared tweets, each no longer than 140 characters.
The tweets have been set for pre-arranged intervals, to keep the service running to time
They will include prayers for the dead, links to a selection of hymns and music on YouTube, and an eight-part sermon written by the Reverend Joanne Cox.
Twitter users can follow the service using the hashtag #weremember.
Ms Cox, who ministers at Westminster Central Methodist Hall in London, says her sermon will reflect on why it is important to live life with bravery and courage.
Though not delivered from a pulpit, she believes her words will help people to engage with the issues of sacrifice precisely because they will come in small snippets.
"Short sentences can help people connect to the bigger spiritual themes of life," she said."
(Officially there has not been such an event held on any social media site)
I joined yesterday as the 162nd follower to the twitter account and by the end of the night the followers had reached 1,000 I and a thousand+ people watched this twitter remembrance service and took part in it tweeting and retweeting statements I was so emotional that I cried. It was brilliant and hope there are services like this again many twitter methodists supported the work of this man who had started this phantom event. I just wanted to share with you how things are moving and we never know twitter may be bigger a part of the Methodist church a lot sooner than many people think!
I think that's all for now.
