Welcome!

These are a collection of sketches, written by me or by friends for use in a variety of different church occasions (services, socials, Alpha courses, etc). Please feel free to use them as you wish. Some may need adapting or updating as they contain jokes specific to a certain congregation/time. I hope you will find them useful and entertaining!

If you have any questions, or comments (especially if you have used any of the sketches), then please email me on info@rodschristiansketches.co.uk.
