7 Ways For A Church To Say Goodbye To Their Vicar…

A couple of weeks ago, The Sofa featured the story of a Church that made a nice cheery video to say goodbye to their vicar. That got us thinking, what other ways are there for a church to say goodbye to their vicar?

This list might be a little inspired by Youtube.

Shoot the vicar from a cannon?

Give them a photo of you, with this frame…


Teleport them away

Blow up the pulpit as they end their last sermon.

Go back, change time, so they never come to your church.

Chase them away, with giant spiders

If nothing else, send them away with a song and a dance.

Any other ideas?

Church Sofa A – Z Guide To Church – Apocrypha

Carrying on the A – Z guide to Church series with “Apocrypha”

Apocrypha: One of those long complicated words that you don’t often hear often. Possibly because its a long complicated word. It’s also a type of Biblical book, of which Revelations seems to be the only polite example. People also like to avoid talking about Revelations, not because its complicated, but because it reads more like Sci-Fi book then anything else.

And let’s face it. Who wants to talk about SciFi in Church? Before you know it, people might be coming to Sunday services dressed in their best Doctor Who or Star Trek costume. And then where will we be?

(There are other examples of the Apocrypha in some random versions of the Bible, but you’ll need to speak to someone more clever then myself if you’re interested in them. Or you could just look it up on Wikipedia)
