From the life-affirming to the admonitory to the downright hilarious – these are very modern signs of faith.

They are the idea of Reverend Paul Sinclair who has entertained parishioners and passers-by at his church in Willesden Green, North London, with the attention-grabbing messages.

‘I got the idea from a fellow pastor in Carlisle,’ says Paul, ‘but was determined to go bigger and better.’

  • The 6ft-high slogans are testament to the pastor’s sense of humour and desire to raise the spirits of his fellow man. Many of them were thought up by Paul but, as their fame spread, people began to send him suggestions.And, attracted by the witticisms, his congregation of just 12 people multiplied to more than 100.Paul admits that his favourite sign was thought up by a member of his church – ‘Love Is Grand, Divorce Is Twenty Grand’.’It really made me laugh, but it’s also topical, which is crucial when trying to connect with people,’ he says.When the Mail published a selection of the signs last year they sparked an internet craze, leading Paul to publish a book of the funniest, Now Open Sundays!
