Find a church

Find a church

If you’ve surfed in looking to find a church I’d recommend A Church Near You which allows you to look at churches on maps and things. This is assuming you are looking for an Anglican church (other denominations are available). Oh, and I think it is only for England. I love looking at the deaneries…

Islam in London Conference

Christians are organising a conference in London about Islam. I was sent an e-mail about it by the organisers, the Lawyers Christian Fellowship and the Barnabus Fund. Islam in London – Contending for the Christian Faith in our Capital City The topics to be covered are: * The Islamisation of London * The development of…

Sister Corita Kent

Sister Corita Kent

Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and Saul Bass, Sister Corita Kent (1918-1986) was one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960s, battling the political and religious establishments, revolutionising graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands of people – all while living and practicing as a Catholic nun…

The Awareness Course

The Awareness Course is expected to be the most revolutionary experience in Christian self-development since the Alpha Course. So says the Anglican Communion website. The Archbishop is commending it. There doesn’t seem to be much online about it, though I eventually dug out the Trinity Foundation for Christianity and Culture which explains everything and has…

Churchwardens

This is another ‘please help Dave with ideas for cartoons’ post. Churchwardens. If any readers are churchwardens I’d love to hear from you of course, but hopefully enough people reading might know a churchwarden to be able to give me some ideas. Of course other denominations won’t have ‘churchwardens’ as such, but you will have…

Vestments

Vestments

I’ve been on the internet doing a little bit of research into vestments and suchlike. Dear me, I have a lot to learn in this world. If anyone knows a thing or two about what clergy wear during services and the different headgear that they wear from time to time then do feel free to…

Find your local parish church

Find your local parish church

It is now possible to find your local parish church by typing your postcode into a little box. If you live in England at least. Up until this point the only way to find out which parish you lived in way to phone up a local vicar on the off-chance. Trust me – I had…

The Faithful Pixel (continued)

Further to my post on the Faithful Pixel I have received the following mailing list e-mail which is attempting to answer some of my criticisms. The money is (partly?) going to charity and there is admission that some of the organisations haven’t paid for their adverts. In the meantime the organiser is off to America…

Emerging Church uncovered

The Sydney Anglican Church Newspaper falls for an April Fools spoof by the rascals at Emergingchurch.info. The story was all to do with Rev Adam Sapple and Eve Ennsong conducting naturist evangelism on Wyndup Beach. The Southern Cross, eager to make its readers aware of the dangers of ‘the Emerging Church’ warned: Alarm bells should…

The Faithful Pixel

I shouldn’t even link to this sort of website as it draws attention to it. But I think in this case it is worth doing. The ‘Faithful Pixel’ (here) entitles itself ‘The Best British Christian Ministry Exhibition in Pixel Form’. It’s the latest ‘Million Dollar Homepage‘ copycat, but this time trying to get money out…

St Pixels

The Ship of Fools online church project ‘Church of Fools’ has been relaunched as ‘St Pixels‘. The site is being officially launched at the Churches’ Media Conference at the Hayes, Swanwick from the 12th to the 14th of June. (Would love to go – another year perhaps.) One of the first features on the site…

Pulpit crimes cruise

Pulpit crimes cruise

Don’t ask me how I found this. This November readers in Florida will have the opportunity to go on a cruise entitled “Pulpit Crimes – The Criminal Mishandling of God’s Word”. (Cartoon included to dispel the myth that any sort of drawing ability is required to be a cartoonist) Cruise delegates get to visit such…

Together for the gospel

Together for the gospel

Dave Warnock posts on the ‘Together for the Gospel’ conference which has had a high profile in certain sectors. When I saw the conference title I was excited. Now as I have read more this has gone. All there is now is another attempt to divide the Church and turn back the clocks. Some years…

Fun, heartache and faith

My ‘Dave was suprised’ cartoon is used in the Door, which is the Oxford Diocesan paper. It is in an article entitled ‘Fun, heartache and faith – that’s youth ministry‘. My youthworking friends Ian and Sarah are featured. In fact I think they wrote it. Talking of the Oxford Diocese, those in the mood for…
