*Welcome to SPAG Magazine
Thanks for dropping by!
Are you a Christian? Do you love God?
Do you want to be encouraged, challenged and inspired in your Christian walk? Then you’ve come to the right place.
SPAG Magazine is a FREE quarterly, online magazine for Christian adults. While we have a focus on singles, our articles are suitable for all Christian adults. We are an international, inter-denominational publication, and we aim to honour and exalt God. We believe that the Bible is God’s inerrant Word. (Link to our Statement of Faith)
Our latest issue (December 2018/Febuary 2019) has over 80 pages and is still free. It’s available to download in pdf form (link here) or to read online in ‘flippable’ version but isn’t downloadable (link here.) After the Christmas fun section below, you can find more details about our current issue down further.
A Little Bit of Christmas Fun
In the lead-up to Christmas, we thought we’d have a little bit of fun, and celebrate a Kooky Christmas.
There’ll be something different every day, right up to and including Christmas Day! Feel free to share it with family and friends.😁
First Day of Christmas
Second Day of Christmas
Third Day of Christmas
More to come…
We’re in December so that means…. *drumroll*
Calling all singles!
How Do You Respond to Those Dumb Comments?
How do you respond when other people make silly, annoying, rude or repetitive comments to you about being a single person? What kinds of things do they say? We had an article in the March/May 2018 issue of SPAG Magazine, sharing things that people have said to other Christian singles about their state of ‘unwedded bliss.’
If you’d like to share some of the comments said to you, please fill out the form on this page, or email us:
Becci and Robbo from the Rise and Show program on Vision FM interviewed me on 24 March about my near death experience, which I shared in an earlier issue of SPAG Magazine. Here’s a link to a copy of that interview:
Bridget Brenton from Christian Today wrote a fantastic review about an earlier issue of SPAG Magazine. You can find the review here.
AND FOR YOU: a FREE devotional booklet for one month:
We hope this book will bring you into a closer relationship with God through praise, prayer and worship.

Join our Prayer Network Team
One of the most important things you can do for SPAG Magazine is pray for us. We need prayer to not only increase our readership, but to enable God to reach out to Christians and Christian leaders across the world, with articles which will encourage, inspire and challenge them.
We also need your prayers for enough finances to keep SPAG Magazine going.
If you’re interested in joining our prayer network, you can become a member on Facebook on this link.
Can 44¢ a day really help SPAG Magazine?
While we’ve recently overhauled some expenses to reduce costs, there are still lots of costs we need to cover to ensure we keep SPAG Magazine available and to provide it to you for free.
This is one of the reasons we sell items through our online store.
During the 2017/2018 financial year, we received some welcome donations and purchases (thank you so much), but still, the outstanding costs were just over *$1,600. That works out to around $4.40 a day. If just ten people had contributed 44¢ a day for the year, our operating costs would have been met – that’s less than one small cappuccino a week!
Would you consider being one of those ten people for our current financial year (2018/2019)? Perhaps you could ask nine people from your church or singles group to make up the remainder. Maybe you could put in a good word for us if you know a great Christian organisation that might be able to help.
Consider also that while we purchased a new computer and monitor back in 2016 (the $2,000 came out of Vicki’s now empty savings account), we have to consider that some time in the next few years, we will likely have to replace our computer again, and with no extra money in her savings account, Vicki has no financial means to purchase a new computer. (The previous computer cost around $1,700, and the monitor was around $300.)
With the assistance of group of ten supporters such as you, putting aside 28¢ a day for the next two years (or 14¢ a day by twenty supporters), we’d have enough money to purchase a new computer tower and monitor as our current computer reaches the end of its life.
Would you make a commitment to help SPAG Magazine in its mission?
Our mission is to inspire, challenge and encourage Christian adults in their walk, and to honour and exalt God.
