I’ve had this one in my bookmarks for a long time as a theme I think would work very well (after some custom styling) for a magazine-style church website or ministry blog. Most churches use a more minimalist, horizontal layout with most of the front page residing above the fold, which is almost always wise. Sometimes, however, perhaps for a subsite, a magazine look can be appropriate as well. Newsley Theme would be great under those circumstances.
