Books!

Yes – amazing isn’t it? Books! Who’d have guessed?

Here is a brief run-down  of my latest books, with links to their individual pages. There you can find sneaky-peeky samples and links to buy the paperback and Kindle e-book versions on Amazon.

Broken Bits & Weirdness

Bible study like you’ve never seen it!

Meet nine of the Bible’s most dismal failures and find out how God still loves them, even with their Broken Bits & Weirdness.

Explore their stories through Bible notes, craft, cooking, outdoors activities, mindfulness colouring, and lots of other imaginative resources.

Suitable for all ages (and that does not mean ‘for kids’), this is the perfect resource book for Bible study groups, personal devotions, youth work, schools and family ministry and Messy Church.

You can use these resources at any time of year or as a Lent series, with special studies for Good Friday and Easter Day.

God Is With Us – Everywhere!

A Rhyming Nativity written with Covid-safe performances in mind.

You can perform this either by pre-recorded video clips or (suitably distanced) in person. The cast is expandable from 9 plus narrator to over 30, with parts for confident actors and small, non-speaking parts for tinies.

There are suggestions for both modern and traditional costuming, and handy hints for staging in a covid-safe environment. Purchase of the book grants you all necessary permissions for putting on the play.

The Big Story

Devotions for Lent and Holy Week, following the story of the Bible from the first word of creation up to the glory of Easter Day.

Find the themes running through the Bible – God’s eternal plan of rescue and reconciliation – and see how they all come together in Jesus.

Each day has a short section of The Big Story, arranged into weekly themes, plus a Bible reading with imaginative reflections, and a prayer.

Walking To Bethlehem

All-Age devotions for Advent with photocopiable colouring pages. Join in the journey, walking with Mary and Joseph all the way to Bethlehem, to meet the baby born for us all.

Each day you will find a part of the Christmas story, drawn from the gospels or Old Testament, plus an imaginative reflection, suggestions for music to listen to, a prayer and a colouring page for adults and children.

A(nother) Bucketful of Ideas for Church Drama

A load more sketches, including the very popular CRISP-tingle and the pop-up Nativity Not A Very Silent Night.

We visit Sharon and Wayne’s Wedding (which may or may not be in Cana), travel by train to Snottis Green, and follow Jonah-man, the Pants Prophet on his holiday to Wales … What’s that you say? You mean the big, wet, flippy things? So it’s not …? Oh, ummn, sorry.

A Bucketful of Ideas for Church Drama

A selection of the best scripts from The Reflectionary, perfect for puppet shows and live-action.

Meet Elijah and some rather suspicious-looking Ravens, listen in on Two Men Praying, and follow the adventures of some Very Important People as they try to see Jesus.

With lots of handy hints on doing drama without, well, the drama, this book will have them rolling in the aisles.
