"...creating immersive environments, where every detail would be considered. Spaces built from surface, idea, sound, word, image and woven together to create a seamless whole- A place where a flyer is no different from a Liturgy, or 35mm Slide from a prayer. All are important, all constitute the whole act of worship..."

"...
branding is about clarity, communication, recognition. brands are succinct summings-up of what you stand for. most of the church doesn't have clarity, can't agree on what it stands for, is full of dissenting voices and loose cannons. successful branding requires coherence across the whole organisation, so that people receive the correct message wherever they touch it. everyone has to sign up, everyone has to be on-message. which isn't the church!"

It is estimated by the UN that 2 to 4 million people are trafficked each year. 500,000 of these are women from all over the world who find their destination in Western Europe. But it’s OK, because on a national level we’re focussed on the laudable task of ‘nation building’; a necessary corollary to declaring war on an international axis of evil. Or is it OK?
