We recently had the privilege of launching a brand new website for the Community of the Resurrection.
Based at the stunning Mirfield Monastery, the Community of the Resurrection consists of men who, freely accepting the call of God, have committed themselves to follow the gospel life.
The Community of the Resurrection was founded in 1892 by a group of Christian Socialists challenged by the poverty of the working classes, and their strong sense of vocation called them to find a home in the industrialised north. The aim of the community is to build up the body of Christ through pastoral and educational works. The Monastery, also home to the Mirfield Centre, offers retreats, school visits, conference facilities, weddings, a bookshop and a bed and breakfast.
Following a desire to share the facilities available at the Monastery with both the local community and the additional Communities across the world, the Community of the Resurrection appointed our team to develop its online presence following a recommendation from an existing client of the Birstall based marketing experts.
The client wished to pull all areas of the Monastery into one main hub, in doing so drawing attention to areas that those unfamiliar with their offering may have previously not known existed. This included the Community of the Resurrection itself, the Mirfield Centre, the onsite Bed and Breakfast and the Shop. Previously, each of these areas had a separate website and the Community of the Resurrection wished to unite the both the spiritual and the hospitality aspects of their offering.
Following a number of initial meetings and a tour of the monastery and its grounds, Fantastic Media gained a full understanding of the organisation and delivered an eye-catching website design to showcase its facilities. The site also incorporates an ecommerce shop, built in Woo Commerce, which allows the monastery to sell a selection of books and religious gifts.
Beth Saville, Account Manager at Fantastic Media, commented: “The impressive Monastery building is right on our doorstep and the agency has been very proud to showcase the Monastery’s facilities and grounds through the new website design.
After conducting ‘competitor research’, it is safe to say that the Mirfield Monastery website stands out against other monastery websites across the UK, it has certainly set the standard.”
