There’s been some discussion about the use of the Hobsons Bay Churches website to promote information about the ministries of individual churches. I’d certainly appreciate being able to check out where, for example, Alpha courses or Answers in Genesis meetings are being held. As individual churches usually arrange these rather than all the churches together, a ban on mentioning the ministries of individual churches would make it harder to put people in touch with such courses.
I come down heavily on the side of sharing of information through the website rather than restricting it to the half-a-dozen things we do together. It would be really great if churches wanted to advertise a visiting speaker, school holiday programme or course. It would make it a much more useful site.
