The administrator of this site and St. Laika's is the Reverend Jonathan Hagger (a.k.a. MadPriest). He is a licensed Church of England priest but he receives no salary from any church or any other employer. At present his ministry consists entirely of his work at St. Laika's and OCICBW... However, he likes to eat occasionally and his blogs cost quite a bit of money to run. So, in true Anglican style a collection plate will always be available for your donations (via PayPal). Full accounts will be posted here each year. You will never be asked to pledge or tithe but a regular monthly contribution from you would give him security and peace of mind. Another way to help Jonathan is to buy Amazon products via his Amazon shop. Details of how to do this can be found in the right hand sidebar.



  1. Come on, dear people. Step up to the plate for our dear MadPriest and for all of US who benefit as a result.

    I run a small non-profit myself and I know that something like this works because of widespread participation – not by large pledges. If everyone gives just a LITTLE bit, it will make all the difference in the world.

    Blessings and love to you all!

  2. Is it correct that the referral fee from products bought through is limited to £7, Mad Priest? … If so that’s pretty shoddy.

  3. So when I buy my Ludens Throat Drops by searching via your Amazon link, even though Amazon doesn’t actually sell them, their link to the seller gives you credit?
