Important Announcement

It’s with great regret that we have to tell you all this.

The Church Sofa is no more.

It’s been a hard few months and we’ve been trying to keep it going but unfortunately we are now unable to work together on this project. Some of you who know us personally might have heard us arguing more and more lately about whether we should have chairs or pews, in fact the other Andy even mentioned rebranding as the church pew. You’ll be able to keep up with us individually on twitter/facebook etc. but as we said The Church Sofa has had it’s cushions removed and is no longer workable.

It’s been a great couple of years and we will miss the sofa dearly and we’re eternally grateful to all the people who we’ve met along the way.

Goodbye

Team Sofa.

Ten New Ways To Put Off The Preacher.

For those times which you feel compelled to misbehave, we’re proud to present; 10 Ways to put off the preacher / speaker:

  1. They’ve dressed smart! You never see them that smart. Point and laugh before he goes up the front
  2. He’s shaved. Every time he looks at you… Stroke your beard. If you have a beard.
  3. Does he have his phone on silent? Text him… Find out…
  4. Silent. Deadly.  See if it reaches the speaker.
  5. Remember that large phone from Trigger Happy Tv? That.
  6. Wear masks during the sermon. Claim you’re joining #OccupyTheSermon movement.
  7. Every time the speaker looks at you. Wink.
  8. Keep an eye on the football scores, hold up score cards during the service.
  9. Have a child in need of winding, and may possibly spit up? Pass the kid over to the speaker to sort just before the service…forget the cloth…
  10. Preaching from an iPad? Tweet him / her… See what happens
Team Church Sofa are not responsible for anything that may or may not happen as a result of any of the above actions!

Church Sofa devotions

I’d like to tell you a story. And in true Church Sofa style it goes like this

The other night we were at the pub. And eventually got to talking specifically about The Church Sofa, we reflected on the Lego Easter series, and started coming up with some possibly very stupid ideas for Christmas and next Easter (it’s true we do plan that far ahead…ish). And we decided it might be kinda cool if we start doing a Church Sofa reflection/devotion type thing. The aim would be for this to go to being once a week but might start off closer to one a month.

I thought I’d float the idea out and see if anyone had any suggestions on first of all people might want this, and perhaps for any content you might want to see in them.
