*Welcome to SPAG Magazine

*Welcome to SPAG Magazine
Welcome in wood
Thanks for dropping by!
Are you a Christian? Do you love God?
SPAG Magazine is a FREE quarterly, digital magazine for Christian adults with a focus on singles. Our purpose is to encourage, challenge and inspire Christian adults in their walk and to honour and exalt God. We believe that the Bible is God’s inerrant Word. (Link to our Statement of Faith)
**While we occasionally receive some well-needed donations to go towards covering our costs, during the past 5 years, we have never been able to cover the yearly ongoing costs to provide this magazine to you for free, and those costs have been coming out of the pocket of our Editor, Vicki Nunn, who often struggles on a pension. Recently we received an amazing donation which along with some earlier donations means that we have for the first time, covered our running costs for the current financial year. Here’s a big shout-out and thank you to Mr L, the latest donor, along with much appreciated donations from the two others. We really love your assistance, and heave a sight of relief! 
Imagine that if you and 10 other people could donate just $3 a week, we could cover our running costs for the year. Donating just $1 more a week ($4), could help us to maintain and replace much needed equipment such as our computer, monitor, scanner/printer and other items. That’s less than $20 a month. Contact our Editor Vicki Nunn via our email address, spagmag1 at gmail.com, for details about how you can help.
