Church halls and celebrity speakers

I’ve been adding some cartoons from ‘How to Avoid the Peace’ to Here are the latest two, in larger-then-usual no-sidebar-on-the-page form. First of all ‘The church hall’…

And ‘The celebrity speaker’…

There are more to come. I’ve got two of my favourites from the book that I’ll be posting this week, and you can see these, and the 8 I’ve posted so far, here: How to Avoid the Peace cartoons. As always licence-holders can use these cartoons in their church magazines, newsletters, in talks, and elsewhere – details here.

Free sample of my colouring pages

church colouring page

A new departure for my site: Colouring pages. They are designed to be printed out and coloured in by either adults or children. Perfect for giving to the church council to calm them before that important debate on removing the pews – or for any other purpose you can think of. There are five designs at the moment, but if they prove popular I will add more. You can see them all here.

The colouring images are for use by licence holders, but here’s a free sample that you can try. This is free for personal use. Print out a couple of copies for family members, but if you use this image with a larger group than that or at your church I’d ask you to buy a licence. I hope that’s fair – thank you!

Happy New Year (belated) everyone.

I’m back on the blog, and contrary to appearances have great things planned for the blog in 2016. Well, that’s the plan anyway.

To kick things off here’s a new-to-the-internet addition to The Choir. You can find it here if you’d like to use it in your church magazine and suchlike.

Coming very soon: a competition and cartoon memorabilia giveaway! (Exclamation mark intentional)

Mug: Keeping order


This is the final week for ordering CartoonChurch mugs from Eve2 Media if you’d like them before Christmas. You can see and order the full range here: Cartoon mugs.

This mug has been the joint-second-most-popular despite the fact I haven’t posted it anywhere. You can find it on here: Keeping order.

In other mug news: the ‘I’m a Coffee Rota Hero’ Mug is available on its own or as part of a Church Times subscription offer along with the book.

Giving cartoon


This is my cartoon from last week’s Church Times, all to do with the reasons people give for not giving.

Usually the new Church Times ones don’t appear here for a while, but as a one off, after a few requests, I’m making this one free for churches to use in magazines and elsewhere. Full details here:

Thanks to the Church Times for allowing me to do this, and to the diocesan stewardship advisor who helped me a lot with the idea.
