Stories of Hope

In these difficult days we could all use some some Stories of Hope

Join Nick The Vic + Sooty & Sweep every week for some faith-filled fun for all the family!


Suzannah and I thought that in the current lockdown we should do our bit to help. As followers of Jesus we want to offer people some comfort, inspiration, education, entertainment and above all HOPE. For us that can only really mean one thing … THE BOYS ARE BACK!!!

We produced a pilot video for Palm Sunday with Sooty and Sweep and friends ‘helping’ Nick tell the story of Palm Sunday (based on Matthew 21). So far it has had over 500 views which has completely blown us away. On top of that there has been a massive outpouring of appreciation via email and social media. People really seemed to like it!

So we recorded another which was released on Easter Day – telling the account of Jesus’ resurrection from Luke’s Gospel. It too seems to be popular.

So we’ve decided to produce a video every week – each one lasting about 15 minutes – for the duration of the lockdown. You’ll be able to see each episode on this page.

Just click on the videos RIGHT HERE BELOW or alternatively directly on my YouTube Channel (

Please get in touch and let us know if you and/or your family are watching and enjoying the Stories of Hope videos.


Stay home: stay safe and God Bless you.


If you are interested in how and why we decided to produce the Stories of Hope videos then you might like to have a listen to something else too. Earlier this week I was interviewed (via Zoom) by Michael Ivatt of the Methodist Church Media Team. He wanted to know all about how we got into working with Sooty & Sweep etc. The interview (which lasts less than 10 minutes) was released today (Thursday 23rd April) in the new edition of the Methodist Podcast. You can hear it by clicking on the link below.

The whole thing is worth a listen but my bit starts at 22 mins 30 secs. Enjoy 🙂


See you back here NEXT SUNDAY any time from 8 am
to watch the next episode of Stories of Hope!
