The Church Sofa Weekly Round Up

Here’s this weeks weekly round up…

To start with, some serious C of E news, it seems there have been some factions opening up and things like that. If you feel like you can concentrate then the Church Mouse explains it all. (Not to be confused with Clarissa…)

Have you heard about the Steelroots saga? If not check out our post here. While the eChurch goes a little deeper, giving a little bit more detail about the tale of the American Bully Boys. If you want a lesson on irony check out the American Steelroots Twitter page.

On a lighter note. According to the BBC, contrary to popular reports, Homer and Bart Simpson are not Catholic.

On a final note if your interested in “iPhone Photography” you may want to check out the Project 365 blog from “ThatAndy”.

Only one name per group please!

Imagine a world where no two churches are allowed to have the same name. If a second church opens with the same name, then one church will sue the other for the right to use that name.

So there would only one “St Peters Church”, only one “City Community Church”, and yes. Only one “Baptist Church”.

The same rules apply to youthgroups, housegroups, and any other ‘groups’.
