10 Ways To Hurry Up A Boring Sermon

So you’re in the service, its got to the sermon, and it feels like the sermon has been going on… since forever… Well here is the Church Sofa List of how to tell the preacher in question, its time to wrap it up…

  1. Stand at the back – make a “your fly is down” motion..
  2. Arrange your row to pretend to sleep at the same time.
  3. Rig up some sort of traffic light system…
  4. Split the congregation up into three sections, get some sort of Britains Got Talent system going…
  5. Everyone. Look at the clock.
  6. Adjust the clock so you can speed it up… You will need to steal the preachers watch to do this!
  7. Everyone in the congregation… Set your alarms to go at the same time.
  8. Countdown music after 25 minutes.
  9. Bribe the PA staff … Kill the mic!
  10. Do you have the preachers mobile number? Reckon its set to silent? Test it…

The Weekly Roundup: The Chatting Edition

Well after the London Riots, life is starting to return to normal around the internet…

Church Sofa T-Shirts

It’s new, it’s exciting and it’s almost definitely true!

The church Sofa lads are going to get some church sofa t shirts, and we need your help to design it, if you’d like to submit a design, the best one when we decide to close the competition will be turned into an actual tshirt and you will receive a signed photo of both Andy’s in their very own church sofa tshirt’s*.

You may be thinking, hold on a sec the church sofa seems reasonably well designed…these guys must be able to design a tshirt. Well this is the best we’ve come up with. And if you don’t come up with something better we’ll make this!














So you might be thinking now, but I don’t have any design software? or I don’t know how to use it?

If that’s you feel free just to let us know a catchy slogan that would either go with the church sofa logo or would be a good stand alone slogan about church.


*You dont have to have a photo unless you really want too!
