A while back…
Well. In 2012… I wondered why a Church should meet in a shed.
Well, here’s a priest that built a Church in a shed…
I cant help but reckon it looks kinda cosy.
What do you think?
Sunday School Craft. Its great. Its a great way for kids to engage with the message in a hands on way, but. What do you do with the craft that your little one has brought out of Sunday school?
Heres a guide for what to do with your Sunday School craft.
What do you do with the “art work” you receive?
Nice to see a Church welcome sign shared online that is… actually welcoming.
Also, bonus points from the Sofa for a lovely sense of whimsy that goes with this. Sofa is a strong believer in the use of whimsy within Church Communications, and would love to see more of it in day to day use.

Can I have a word about that sermon during the Royal Wedding?
You know the one that has had its text printed on websites all over the place.
There seems to be a number of comments about the length of the sermon, with the question being. Was the sermon too long?
I’m interested in what you think?
Personally I think it was quick compared to many… many sermons I’ve heard.
Please vote on my Twitter poll to tell me how long a sermon should be…
Ok… how long is too long for a sermon?

Are you used to 60 min plus sermons? Do you feel short changed by anything less than 20 minutes? Do you drift off after 9 minutes?

Normally when this blog discusses Church seating arrangements, it is in the context of arguing between the use of chairs or Church pews.
Today, I’d like to present the above diagram, showing how seats can be arranged in Church.
As you can see, the seats are presented in a semicircle, giving the speaker a fantastic chance to engage with as many people as possible.
It also means that preschoolers can wave and shout hello at each other during the service.
How do you arrange you seats in church, and why is that a silly move?
(Yes the above diagram was indeed written on the back of a Church Notice Sheet, during a church service.
Can you spot the moment when I felt I should stand up during worship?)
