Top 10 Embarrassing Moments In A Church Service

You know its going to be a bad service when:

  1. You’re singing loudly, and out of tune… without realising your minister has changed the song lyrics.
  2. The baby you’ve been asked to hold, throws up…over your face.
  3. If I told you about The Giggle Loop… you’d be part of The Giggle Loop
  4. The Prayer time starts… so does your coughing fit.
  5. You grab your bottle of Coke… open the bottle… swig… and it drops as you put it down. Its amazing how far a bottle of coke can spread over a floor.
  6. Two words. Nose Bleed.
  7. You’re sat dead in the middle of the congregation… and you need to fart…
  8. You miscalculate the amount of sweets you’re taking out your pocket… dropping them loudly on the floor.
  9. Its quiet. Its serious. People are crying. Your phone rings. Loudly.
  10. You stand up in front of the Church Service… and wonder if you really did your flies up earlier.

Any that we’ve missed out?

A Valentine’s Day Something…

I don’t normally like posting multiple youtube type videos, but Tim Hawkins is funnier then me ranting about the Hallmark Holiday known as Valentine’s Day…

The Church Sofa Lads had nothing to do with putting this together by the way… in other words please dont blame us for the cheesy titles…

Hundreds set to propose to David Cameron this Valentine’s Day!

Treat Someone SpecialValentine’s Day is less than one week away! So if you’re lucky enough to be in a relationship, you may wanna do something about it. In fact even if you’re not in a relationship, and you just like buying decent cards for weddings and things, you may also want to check out the following from Share Creative:

In the run up to 14th February, hundreds of people in the UK will send Prime Minister a Valentine’s Card to raise awareness of the 27 million people all over the world (including the UK) who won’t be shown that they are a Special Someone. These are the people that are trafficked into situations including prostitution, begging, forced labour, military service and domestic service.

This year, you can help stand against human trafficking through a number of the ‘Special Someone’ initiatives.

There is an opportunity to buy Valentine’s cards for your loved ones at www.treatsomeonespecial.com. For each card sold, another will be sent to David Cameron asking him to hold to his commitment to prioritise tackling the trade in people and opt in to the revised EU Directive on Human Trafficking. Proceeds from the cards will support the work of anti-trafficking agencies.

Last May, when the Coalition Government formed, they promised to make tackling human trafficking a priority. However, the UK is currently one of only two EU member states that are yet to opt in to the directive – an agreement which offers better protection to child trafficking victims, greater powers to prosecute traffickers and protection for victims in criminal proceedings.

There are a host of other creative initiatives on the Special Someone website. Sarah Burnett of Share Creative says, “With human trafficking now the fastest growing illegal industry, we need to realise that it’s a very real, very lucrative and very close problem. As we treat those we love this Valentine’s Day we’re also taking action to fight the treatment of people as commodities.”
