Praise for The OMG Effect

The hottest thing in the Church of England right now. . . The Rev Chris is kind, thoughtful, relevant.


Rev. Chris Lee takes his message not just to his local congregation but to everyone. One of the things that's really touched base on Instagram is his 60 Second Sermons. . . it's like a bite-sized chunk of thought that people can take on board.


An internet sensation.


His quirky, fun approach has connected with young people . . . and he has been compared to the 'Hot Priest' in the BBC Comedy Fleabag.


It's amazing how sometimes you hear something that speaks to your soul! Thank you for your beautiful words!
