Exile Road – comic book for children

Exile Road – comic book for children

I’d like to give a quick mention to Paul, whose children’s comic book ‘Exile Road’ is being used by the Spring Harvest Christian holidays this year. Paul writes a ‘Wiblog’ on my other site (the one that was broken but is now less broken than it was). You can read information and discussion about it…

How to be a real man

Warning: repeated use of the word ‘pisseth’ (as used in the King James Version of the Bible). I found the clip via Real Live Preacher (who, incidentally, has a new website – worth adding to your feed reader). Apparently it is for real – it is by Pastor Steve Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church….

Cafe Church

Cafe Church

Whilst I’m on a ‘Fresh Expressions’ sort of theme here’s something else that has popped up in the comments. The Baptists in Welwyn Garden City have started to ‘cross frontiers and break new ground’ by having church meetings in their local Costa coffee shop (see image: right) and have chatted with Costa who have said…

Doodle the Gospel with the UCCF

Doodle the Gospel with the UCCF

The UCCF are encouraging Christian students to help illustrate the gospel of Mark using doodles. The scheme is called ‘oodles of doodles’ and is explained here. 400 000 copies of the doodled-upon gospels will then be given out to students this September. An example of a good evangelistic doodle is shown above. One assumes that…

That which unites us

That which unites us

This is my drawing for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, a special 8 day week which is currently taking place. The Churches Together in Britain and Ireland site has links to pamphlets and the BBC has a picture showing how doves are involved. Notably the week is 100 years old this time around,…

Methodist bloggers

Methodist bloggers

Some of the UK’s Methodist bloggers have been having a gathering this weekend. Note the dark brown cups as opposed to the pale green variety traditionally used by Anglicans. (Aside: If the Methodists and Anglicans ever join together the proposal is to have cups of a murky brown pale green colour.) The Methodists are way…

There is a second Bold’s Fold book

There is a second Bold’s Fold book

Cartoonist Darren Harvey-Regan, creator of ‘Bold’s Fold‘ has a second book out called ‘Bold’s Fold – a second helping’. Darren’s cartoons are all about the charismatic branch of Christianity. If you are, or have been, involved in that side of things I think you will enjoy this book. Those who have been reading my website(s)…

God is a Londoner

God is a Londoner

So says Time Out magazine in its special Religious London issue which is on news stands everywhere as long as you are in London. Sorry for being so London-centric again, but it’s just that I don’t have any other capital cities half an hours train ride away. Here is a sample paragraph from a sample…

Pentecost Festival

The Pentecost Festival is a huge event planned in London from the 9th to the 11th of May next year: A massive weekend party in central London with hundreds of free events and high impact performances. A cross-generational, multi-cultural celebration of the Church’s creativity and compassion that will fill hundreds of venues – coffee shops,…

The A-bike Evangelist

The A-bike Evangelist

I have discovered that one of the people who was up against me in the Creative Blog Category in the Christian Blog Awards is an evangelist who navigates around Britain in a sailing boat, stopping here and there to evangelise riding a Sinclair A-bike whilst dressed as John Wesley. You don’t believe me do you?…

Love Basildon

The Christians of Southend held an event in 2005 they called ‘Love Southend‘. The Christians of Basildon have been inspired by this so are holding an event called ‘Love Basildon’. Unfortunately it is quite difficult to find any authoritative information about ‘Love Basildon’ online, because there does not seem to be any. There is one…

Methodists respond to wallpaper criticism

Methodists respond to wallpaper criticism

The Methodist Church has responded to my recent criticism of their yellow wallpaper by launching a new website. They do not actually say that this is why they have released a new website, but the timing seems terribly co-incidental otherwise. Having had a look around it I think it is very good. It took me…
