How the CofE can learn from the Methodists
On the new ‘theConnexion.net‘ website the Methodist bloggers are asking each other how their national church website is doing. So, how is it doing?
Well, in one particular measure very well indeed. If you do a Google Search for ‘church’ you find The Methodist Church of Great Britain in the No 1 spot. Well, at least, I do. Your version of Google may not, depending upon where you live.
Other residents of the first page are the Episcopal church in the USA, the Church of Scotland, the Church in Wales and the United Reformed Church. But where is the Church of England? Not on page one. Nor page two. No, it’s on page three, just ahead of the Inflatable church, Charlotte Church and the Church of Fools. Oh, and the Vatican.
We obviously have a lot to learn from the Methodists.
