A ‘digital facelift’ for the MCS

Jan 2015    

By the end of the month, The Methodist Church in Singapore (MCS) will have a fresh new look – online!

Our homepage at www.message.methodist.org.sg is currently undergoing a thorough revamp to make it more engaging, less text-heavy, and with a more dynamic and contemporary feel. This will give a better reflection of what it means to be Methodist in Singapore – a Christian community that is vibrant and dynamic, seeking to forge greater unity within the Body of Christ. With information of our history and heritage, and our common values (in outreach, mission, education and discipling), this site seeks to encourage participation from all member agencies and ministries in serving others with God’s love.

A new feature on the website is the use of ‘tiles’ to highlight happenings, ministries and events in a more visually-engaging way. Vital information – such as contacts of local churches, Methodist schools, and upcoming events – will be made more quickly and easily accessible. Two new areas have been set aside to highlight the Youth and Seniors’ ministries of our three Annual Conferences. A thorough reorganisation of our archived articles will also be taking place progressively over the course of this year.

The revamp will coincide with the launch of MCS 130, the year-long celebration of our 130th Anniversary, together with Singapore’s Golden Jubilee year, SG50. Events and announcements of MCS 130 will be featured prominently on the website throughout the year.
