Welcome

Hi, I’m Christine Woolgar. Here at Faith in Grey Places, I explore Scripture through creative writing—whether that’s poetry, prose or drama.

You’re welcome to use these resources in worship—and I’d love to know if you do! Contact me here. If you use my work, please credit me and include a link to this site.

I usually publish something new each Sunday. If you like what you read, please consider signing up for weekly or quarterly updates via email.
