Baptist minister's award for charity website
A bi-vocational Baptist minister has recently created an award winning website for Kick London, a Christian charity using sport to transform young people’s lives with God’s love.
Tim Hyde is the minister of West View Baptist Church in Hartlepool and also founder of LIVINGOS, a web design studio which helps businesses, charities and churches share their story on-line.
The Kick London website was chosen from over 100 entries in the Best Christian Organisation Website category at the Christian New Media Awards last week. The awards, run by Premier Christian media, celebrate and encourage excellence in Christian engagement online.
Jo Bradbury, Project Manager for Kick London said, ‘We were both a little shocked to win as there was a lot of good competition from big Christian organisations, but we are thrilled to have gained the award and that we have a website which provides us with an excellent platform to help us reach more young people for God.
‘Tim was able to turn our thoughts and ideas into a design which suits our charity and is clear and easy to use. He gave good advice about what would and would not work, supported us through the technical jargon, and everything was done quickly and efficiently. Tim really went the ‘extra mile’ for us so we are really delighted he has received this recognition.’
Kick London is celebrating 10 years of working with churches, schools and the community to reach more young people with God’s love. You can read more about their work on the website www.kicklondon.org.uk
