The Church Sofa Awards 2016

Welcome to the seventh (SEVENTH!) edition of The Church Sofa Awards.

This is where we celebrate the best and sometimes worse moments of 2016, featured both on this blog and around the internet. Obviously the standard rules apply, no actual awards will be given out or harmed during these proceedings.

The first award is…

Church Notice Board of The Year:  Well this interesting bit of advertising seemed popular… Not sure why…

Twitter Hero of The Year:  @aliveandonline, the founder of . Go on. Give them a follow, and say hi from The Church Sofa.

Most useful Church Sofa List: It looks like we helped people learn how to prepare for when the Vicar visits with our “Vicar coming to visit” checklist.

The Greatest Regret from 2016:  Last year I wrote, “Sofa does try and educate people about Church and Churchy things through the form of lists. This years most popular list seems to be A Reminder of What Is Not in The Bible. I still sometimes ponder writing more about what isn’t in the Bible….” I still have the same ponder, and I’ve still done nothing about it. Sad how quick a year can pass isn’t it?

The Church Toilet of The Year:

Silly Song of The Year:

Anyone else fancy a pizza?

Hero of The World.*

He may not be the hero we need.

But we really feel K2SO from Star Wars – Rogue One, is the hero 2016 deserves.

I would explain why… but *shhh* spoilers…

*This last award may not be serious… Actually none of them are really serious…

What do you reckon? Are then any awards which we should have included??

Any awards that should have been different?

Any thing that we’ve missed out?

Want Some Good News?

I don’t seem to be alone in thinking that 2016 has been filled with bad news story followed by bad news story. (At least according to the newspapers anyway…). Well The Sofa has cracked a little, and has created The Good News Page on Facebook.

The Good News Page is there to talk about the good stuff in the world.

The Good News Page is there to put something positive into your Facebook feed.

If you like the idea, can you spare The Good News Page a like, and get some good news into your Facebook world.
