New Baptist Union website
The BUGB website - www.baptist.org.uk - was relaunched in March but I thought I'd wait to comment in case there were post-launch tweaks. It's a considerable improvement on the old site, which kept its content well hidden for the most part. The navigation is greatly improved and in general the site has dragged itself into line so it's no worse than most other denominational sites.
A newsfeed for local Baptist church website use, and a directory which provided proper links to them would have been welcome.
It's interesting to note how centrally controlled the site makes a denomination of locally governed churches appear!April 2011
