    Just flog yourself while saying "Hail Mary"s and put the pics on tumbler.

    Yes it does - Arxhbishiop Deya and his wife were accused of flying infertile women to Nairobi where they gave birth to miracle babies purchased in the slums. And this: 'Miracle babies' preacher Gilbert Deya charged with sex offences
    Pastor to be extradited to Kenya accused of stealing babies

    Although there is a fine tradition of this in Spain, many of us church goers would settle for a nice cup of tea!

    He just bounces back every time. I didn't see the full thing tonight, but on the BBC London 6.30 pm news he was having a round table interview with himself and some followers on one side of the table and two BBC reporters on the other.
    Everything they asked him about he denied. The man is obviously a psychopathic liar and there seems to be no mechanism for dealing with it.

    If I was a cynic I would suggest we need a judge-led enquiry and a new regulator!

    I thought it was his dad (Joseph, not the God-dad) who was the carpenter, and Jesus was just doing an apprenticeship, like sweeping floors and doing the filing. But he never completed it as he quit early to do other things. An extended gap year I guess

    Feeling like a bit of light relief from Andrew Neil tomorrow morning, I scanned the Unitarian Church's website to check the service time.
    Was shocked to see a picture of myself and "refugee" lodger from around 2002 on the home page. Still nice to remember what it was like not to have a grey hair.

    Recently saw a Bentley GT Convertible with the number plate YE5 10RD being worked on at one of the garages near LJ. Asked the mechanic who it belonged to - a local church leader apparently! Obviously with a very generous congregation ...

    That one more likely Ruarch or New Covenant Church on Brixton Hill. Both of which are heaving. New Covenant is very Gospel of Prosperity - Nigerian accountants and software fiends and the like. Sounds like a likely place for a Bentley.

    I just realised the photo there was of a church outing to the Millenium Wheel. In a pod.

    As far as I know there is only one church in Brixton to hold a David Bowie Memorial Serivce.

    Obviously it has to be the Unitarian Church on Effra Road - supposedly a ticketed event, though I'd be surprised if they exceed their capacity - unless the "Sunday Service" atheist church lot turned up en masse.

    My Christian friend (young, Oxbridge etc!) who lives in Brixton goes to a church in Battersea I think...

    Just wanted to point out that as I see it the swearing in of Sadiq Khan at Southwark Cathedral at noon Saturday 7th May involved a couple of local church luminaries.
    To my eye (and I'm adding a photo in case other think differently) the person leading Sadiq into the chancel area was Rev Nick George - vicar of St Giles Camberwell (photo below).

    The the right of Sadiq as he says his "few words" at the lectern was Rev Canon Rosemarie Mallet, vicar of St John's Angel Town (and chair of St John's School governors).

    I saw that car being driven aggressively through Brixton last Sunday. I was wondering what sort of person would be interested; the peerage or the church.
    I've seen that Ruach have a spanking new Transit minibus parked up by Roupell Road. Also very impressive in its own way.

    Seems there was a Good Friday service or procession by Brixton churches opposite the tube station - picture tweeted by Rev Rosemarie Mallet of St John's Angell Town.
