'Porn again'

Porn Sunday is an initiative to help cure pornography addicts. Brian Draper (my bestest new buddy) talks to the people who began it...

You can read the full article in Church Times called

Boobs, butts and brokenness


Brian also interviewed me for this as we were one of only two UK churches to do this...

North of the border the experience was similar for David Lynch, who helps lead an emergent Christian community, Tapestry, in Dingwall, in the Scottish Highlands. He found out about Porn Sunday through the website, and decided to run an event. “We tried to open this out to the other churches in the area, but they were reluctant to get involved,” he says. “They didn’t think it was something the Church should even be discussing.”
Mr Lynch reports that very few people except the organisers turned up to the event. “I don’t want to make any judgement about that. To try that kind of thing in a traditional Presbyterian culture is perhaps a bridge too far up here.”


I did say that and a bit more, he also says about a follow up film we made...It’s had 36,000 downloads in total,” he reports. “Viewers have requested pastoral help.

That total is now 60,000

The pastoral aspect has been good, and is still ongoing worldwide.

So thats 60,000 that have visited our church in less than a year, and we made feature article in Church Times, put that in your seeker sensitive porpoise drivel church growth pipe and smoke it!!!
