An Evening of Fun and Stockingfillers

Meet authors Gary Alderson and Rich Wyld and cartoonist Dave Walker for an introduction to their idiosyncratic take on life as we explore Writes of the ChurchThe World according to Theologygrams and How to Avoid the Peace.

Monday 11 December at 6.30pm

The former is a collection of letters for the church magazine, where the locals write what they actually think. The writers are odd and aggressive and bicker and complain, the vicar is overworked, but the depth of their love for the church comes through the threats to boycott the church over a tea towel, the obsession over saving money and the complaints that children are allowed into the church during an act of worship. And all illustrated by Dave Walker, who many of you will know from his annual calendars, his own books and his cartoons in the ‘Church Times’.

Gary Alderson has quite a following as @Gerrarrdus on Twitter, and for his blog The Beaker Folk of Husborne Crawley, and has an alter ego Archdruid Eileen.  He also has a blog  Writes of the Church.

The World according to Theologygrams follows the very popular Theologygrams and is another look at the world around us and the Christian faith through Rich Wyld’s unique colour diagrams and commentary. Funny, cheeky and genuinely instructive, the books have wide appeal.

Dave Walker comes up with a cartoon for the Church Times every week, and is the author of a number of books on the church (and on cycling). His latest book is How to Avoid the Peace. Buy one of his books and you may get a doodle inside as well as a signature!

This evening is free and open to all, refreshments provided
