Organising content in a user friendly way
When Trustees for Methodist Church Purposes approached us to help them create a new website, their initial ideas were based around their own internal structure. During the early stages of the project we were able to help them redefine the brief to better serve the need of their users.The site had to be able to hold a large amount of content, ranging from documents and forms to videos, checklists, external links and more. So we spent a day mapping out a suitable site structure with the TMCP team. Then we created a three tier site with a categorisation and resourcing function, which helps users access relevant resources depending on the page they’re viewing. The site also features an intelligent search function powered by a bespoke indexing engine.

Creating attractive multi-resource web pages
This campaign site was built for the Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham, with the goal of encouraging people to have more meaningful engagement with outreach. It needed to be able to present a huge amount of content in the form of audio files, videos, downloads, external links and more.
Our challenge was to give the Growing Disciples team something they could continue to update, edit and add to, creating new collections of resources while keeping a sense of cohesion across the site. To achieve that, we built integrated multi-resource pages that allow the team to add and reorganise content easily.

The Diocese of Blackburn
Creating value from internal data
The Diocese of Blackburn came to us with an old and rather clunky website and asked us to not only make it responsive, but create a design that would visually integrate with their new vision: Vision 2026.
As well as that, we helped them develop an online directory that integrates with the CMS we had previously built for the Church of England. While the CMS is an internal tool, we were able to use the location and contacts data as a base, and create filters and permission settings so only appropriate content would be made available. As a result, it has become a valuable resource for the general public.

Making giving easier on mobile devices
The original website for the Shoebox campaign from Samaritan’s Purse used a drag and drop format to get people building their gift online. It was quite a confusing set up with little user guidance, and was difficult to use on touch devices.
We used a mobile first approach to create the new site, with a guided five step process that involves choosing the recipient’s gender and age then adding an essentials pack, one large toy, three small toys and three accessories before heading to the check out. The journey is tracked by a simple progress bar so users always know how much further they have to go.

Telling the story of a great man
The Müllers website was about 10 years old when the organisation went through a rebrand and brought us in to give it a make over. With a large amount of existing content and a relatively simple two tier site structure, our main job was to make the site as attractive and engaging as possible.
One key element was to tell the story of Muller extraordinary life and works. We portrayed this as an interactive timeline interspersed with pictures, video, text and animations. We also created a photo gallery that integrates with Flickr. This means that the Müllers team can create an album in Flickr, then simply copy the URL across and the gallery pulls those images in, rather than having to re-upload and index them all again.

Providing answers for the seekers
Having built the original Looking for God site five years ago, we renewed it in 2017. This time the brief was to make it responsive, because of the increased number of people accessing the site from mobile devices.
Design-wise the site is deliberately minimalistic but it has a lot going on behind the scenes. For example, it features a bespoke Integrated Answer Matrix (or I AM) database, which has intelligent display capabilities that offers suggested content to anyone who has submitted a question. We also created a workflow system that helps the team answer individual questions, ensuring the answers are referenced, theologically accurate, checked for tone of voice and SEO optimised before they go live on the site.

S&N Directory App
Connecting the local CofE community
If you live within the diocese of Southwell and Nottingham and need to get hold of your local vicar, church warden or even CofE school head teacher, finding their contact details is easy. Just use the S&N Directory app.
We created this app for Southwell Diocese using the database we developed for the Church of England. It was designed for internal staff but can also be used in a public facing capacity, giving parishioners access to any publicly available contact information. The app includes an interactive map that details all churches and schools in the diocese with associated contacts.
