Hi, I’m Maggy Whitehouse, writer, author, stand-up comedian, Independent Catholic minister, and Bible historian. Too much to take on at once? Not at all! It’s a fabulous life of creativity and diversity and every strand of it involves my greatest love — to write.
What can I do for you? I can write articles, blogs, content to your requirements, with or without humour (I”m a former BBC journalist so can write swiftly, accurately and to the point). I can host or compere your event, make you laugh out loud and inspire you simultaneously, ghost-write your book, run workshops on women in the Bible, Judaic mysticism and the New Testament, perform a sacred ceremony for you – from baby-naming through marriage, divorce and death. Oh – and I can present a radio or TV show for you too. Plenty of years’ experience in all of the above and plenty of fabulous stories to tell too.
What you’ll find on this site is:
A deep and abiding love for the Holy One (whatever you may choose to call It) but please don’t be put off by the ‘religious’ aspect. I have the greatest respect for all faiths — and none. My greatest spiritual experience — so far — was in the Mosque of Sidi-Uqba in Kairouan, Tunisa and I concur with the Islamic mystic Hafiz’s view that “It is a great injustice and a monumental act of cruelty for any religion to make someone fear God.”
Ceremony and Ritual — individually-written services for you, whether you are getting married, divorced or need some help in marking a sacred rite of passage. I believe that the primary purpose of a minister is to help lift hearts.
“Maggy has lived and breathed this teaching for a decade and it shows clearly in both her life and her work. She is witty, down-to-earth and unpretentious.” Jane Struthers, Bella magazine Astrologer
