Working on redesigning the Message website with more of a 'content stream' feel of constantly updating content: images, videos, quotes etc. It's a big change for how the site works currently but feels like the right direction for a charity with a lot going on.
Designed with team @Message Creative!
Feedbacks welcome, as always.

your typography is usually really good... maybe give it some more love for this as well. Seems a little "generic" right now for me.... Come on... you can do better :)
@Frederik thanks for the feedback! We were trying to keep it really simple, but I guess it's lost a bit of character too. I'll see what I can do!
I like the tiled arrangement. Nice use of some Sentinel too! Gotta love that filler copy and content.
The main thing that sticks out to me is that the prayer point doesn't stand out enough to me sitting within the content like it is. Seems like that should be something that's anchored somewhere near the top during that particular day. I'd guess that prayer point is something important.
@Kyle Barrett thanks Kyle! Glad you enjoyed the filler copy, that took most of my time. The prayer point is going to be new every day so we didn't really want it showing up at the top every time, we opted instead to have it floating around somewhere in the midst of the posts.
@Jonathan Ogden No problem man! Ah, makes sense. Looks great!
@Frederik Samuel I agree, there's nothing overly wrong with it, but it just feels a bit characterless.
@Jonathan Ogden I like the speech bubble for the prayer point, it's just adding a little something and breaking the rigidity of the grid a bit. My only other observation would be that the images for the articles don't feel connected. I'm glossing over them and looking at the headlines, meaning that beside the other image tiles I feel like they're getting a bit lost or not really a part of the article.
What would be great is if it felt less 3 column-y. I'd love to see some of the single tile images / quotes / prayer points etc. mixing up the uniformity a little. If that makes sense.

We pretty much went back to the drawing board with this one. We went a bit more minimal and smaller. Rather than trying to make all the blocks a little more interesting and colourful, while still matching each other, we realised that just keeping every minimal made it all work together better anyway. They match the single pages pretty well too which I might dribbble at some other point in the near or distant future.
Feedback welcome as usual! There's a big one attached. I also re-did the placeholder content, which we all know is the most important part.
(Also, there will come a footer someday).
