Just to say heartfelt thank you for the swift delivery of the above. We are now all ready for our preparations in the run up to Easter. We will also use Bailey & the flowers (we now have two) in our local care homes and school visits and they all love the puppets. (March 2017)

Thank you so much for sending me this track. We now have an Easter puppet Service! Blessings to you also and thank you for giving us such lovely songs for our puppets to perform to. (March 2017)

Thank you so very much for making my stone puppets so quickly and posting them in order for them to arrive today. I am delighted with them. (March 2017)

Can I congratulate the team who led the course in Bramhall. As a complete novice and left handed to boot I had the most wonderful time learnt such a lot. Everyone made you feel welcome and not a fool when unable to do things. The sketches were wonderful. Thank you again. (March 2017)

Thanks so much for sending over the script. I took my snail into assembly yesterday and had a fantastic reaction from both children and teachers, so thank you for the training! The children want him to come back every time, and I met a mum today at our tot’s group who asked if I was the one with ‘Herbert’ as her son was talking about him this morning and said he’d left a big impression. (February 2017)

Thank you very much for your prompt action on my order. I did not place the order until Wednesday afternoon and it was delivered today. (February 2017)

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU very much for sending out my order (of gloves) which arrived the following day. All items that I have ordered from you have been despatched straightway and I wanted to thank you for your efficiency. May you have a BLESSED Christmas and New Year. (December 2016)

“Thank you once again for a really informative, spiritual and fun experience at the European Festival last weekend. It was so well run, and great workshops. Special mention for Maegan Bruce. Not only did she do excellent workshops, but her ventriloquist skills were out of this world!”

“We just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work this weekend at the European Puppet Festival. We enjoyed every minute of it and came away feeling uplifted and encouraged, just what we needed. So, many thanks to you all.”

“Loved it as usual, very informative workshops, thank you to all the team. So many fantastic workshops, hard to choose which ones to go too!”

“I love coming to the Festival, it’s great to see such a wide variety of puppetry styles, it’s really helpful and inspiring. The workshops are a great opportunity to try new styles and puppets and learn new skills. The venue is absolutely fantastic!”

“Thank you for doing an amazing job at providing for us each year. It’s amazing that we all have the opportunity to come together like this and learn so much.”

“A massive thank you for all your work for another really successful Festival.”

“I came for the first time last year and had a great time, brought two other people from our church this year. Again amazed at the talent! It’s so much fun. The workshops I went to were led so well and so informative.”

“It was a brilliant two days and you seem to have covered nearly every expressive art form. The only two I could see missing was dance and drawing or painting which Meagan actually showed us I have seen this done before in a worship setting and is so powerful. Well, done to all involved.”

“Fabulous new range of workshops. Many, many thanks for all you do to help us share the Gospel it is a pleasure to be part of this family.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole event once more and am already looking forward to next year!”

“I attended my first European Creative Ministries Festival recently having known about One Way UK for many years. I was invited to present workshops to demonstrate how I make music videos with puppets using only my phone. The weekend was a great opportunity for me to meet other people with similar interests and to see such a wide range of creative work on display – there are some really dedicated, talented and hard-working people from all over the country. It was good to witness a wider picture which I knew little of and the festival must surely have been quite an inspiration to most of those in attendance.

It was also good to meet the One Way UK team and to find out about what they each do down in Grimsby. Again, they are some really good people who do so much to provide us with training, resources and contacts. I was particularly pleased to have been welcomed as part of the team and enjoyed being able to help anyone who may have needed it.

Finally, but most importantly, it was a blessing to see so many people working with all of their heart as for the Lord and not for men. I’m sure I’ve come across that verse in Colossians 3:23 somewhere before!”

I’ve been buying from One way UK for over 12 years now and you are top class outfit. Nothing is ever a problem and from the Top down and everyone cannot do enough to meet the needs of the customer. That is why you are so successful and a massive inspiration to people like me and many other Ministry teams around this country and also the world in reaching out to the lost. (August 2016)

Thank you for a fantastic day on Saturday. I was beginning to think it was a big mistake when we had so few people come forward to take part from Solihull Parish. Never mind, as a result of the day, we have four definite new recruits and we have been able to change our rehearsal day to accommodate them. Oh, wow, it’s really exciting! We “old hands” have also been inspired and touched by your performances and dedication to your ministry. (August 2016)

Puppets have arrived safely. They are lovely, thank you. Many thanks to you and your team for all the hard work involved in making these puppets to order. I’ll let you know how they are used. (July 2016)
They are now downloaded. Great service – VERY impressed… take care. (July 2016)

Thank you, puppet arrived today. He is lovely, very expressive wee face. Great service thank you (June 2016)

Thank you OneWay UK for creating my beautiful customised puppet! I absolutely love the Raggabon character range from OneWay but I really wanted a ‘girly girl’ Raggabon! I discussed what I wanted with Cam and seeing as I really liked the features of the new pro-puppet range, with hidden arm rods, bending wrists and the separate neck and body so asked for my new puppet to have these features too. There were so many colours and fabrics to choose from and I was given great advice as to which work well together and I chose some really bright colours to help emphasise the flamboyant character I was after in my puppet. As I’m quite picky, the hair did a few attempts, and when I say a few that would be a generous understatement but the team at One Way were more than happy to try new styles and colours until we found the one that was ‘just right!’ And in doing so helped me to get the exact character I was looking for. I have named her Margo, she is loud and bold Raggabon and generates a good few giggles from children and adults alike as she helps share the gospel at our monthly church outreach events! All in all, an absolute five star service from One Way UK, couldn’t recommend them enough, thank you so much! (June 2016)

I just wanted to let you know that we had the best day with you on Saturday in Hull! Our young people went home enthused and excited by what they’d learned, turned up (early!!) to church yesterday to have another rehearsal before performing “Tell Him About It” during the service (using our new screen) and can’t wait to get stuck in with more puppeteering as soon as we can fix a rehearsal, despite them all walking around nursing their sore arms. Thank you, you do a brilliant job! (April 2016)

We were delighted to receive the Delux Stand Set and Curtains. Absolutely delighted with them. They look to be excellent quality. (March 2016)

Thank you one way puppeteers for your teaching from the training and DVD, I have just done my first puppet assembly in a school for YR1, it went well, having being by myself I give God thanks and your team for the encouragement, the dog in the bag was a hit I did the stone object lesson, children was sitting wondering what was inside, which helped me tell the Easter story using the other people puppets, thanks again as I know this is just the beginning, God bless. Great job you’re doing the impact which you have imparted God continue to bless. (March 2016)

I had such a great day last Saturday and could see how much the kids loved it so hope to do it again and will invite few more people from our Church as the younger ones would really enjoying puppetry. Well done again to everyone for organising such a wonderful fun day. (March 2016)

Great puppet training day. These guys are so encouraging and inspiring. A great fun way to share the gospel. Also brilliant for anyone wanting to become a puppeteer. Lots of hands on experience. And you will be learning from the best. (February 2016)

I received them yesterday. I just wanted to say thank you for all your help. I love them! I can’t wait to use them! (January 2016) The puppets I bought for Christmas have been a huge success in my family. THANK YOU. (January 2016)

I was able to successfully download the file [Listen 2 Him Lyrics and songs] and everything is great with both purchases! Thank you very much! Blessings to you and all of One Way UK! (December 2015)

European Festival 2015 – Thank you so much for Rugby this year. What a find in Tim and Amanda Cowles who shared their wealth of experience and yet also answered questions helping a lot of us in the basics. They even gave tips for those starting out on low budgets, developing our skills and building a team or working with a partner (out front) Hazel found the two workshops with Amy Robinson helpful in particular the ARRRh. Also helpful working outdoors with puppets David Hellyer. I also found Steve and Kays workshop on advanced ventriloquism helpful made us think outside the box in the question time. Bob Hartman as usual made us think outside the box, his story telling over the years has helped mine and Hazels a lot. A great event as always, the workshops get better each year. (November 2015)

European Festival 2015 – I think I found this the best conference ever. Brilliant, Inspiring, Uplifting, Encouraging, Challenging, Informative, Made me laugh and forget problems. So all round it was a great 2 days. The Christian and Gospel content were a huge huge blessing personally. I felt spoke to and ministered too. (November 2015)

European Festival 2015 – Just to say thank you so much to everyone involved for the great day we had on Saturday at Rugby. It was our second year attending and we always learn so much and are able to take away some great ideas. Great atmosphere, quality workshops. Good to hear about Fulani Ministries in Burkina Faso, thank you. (November 2015)

We attended your training session at Rayleigh and it was very useful. You really encouraged my wife to continue with our puppet ministry. Thanks. (October 2015)

Just to say that Blizz arrived on Wednesday as promised!! The kids love him – everyone wants a cuddle – thank you for all of your help – we’re delighted. (August 2015)

Thank you very very much for my order. Dispatched Monday received by me Tuesday for a birthday on Thursday. What a fantastic service, and what a great product. My Grandaughter was thrilled with her gift. Thank you very much indeed. (August 2015)

Absolutely delighted with the large wolf puppet received today. He will be appearing in panto in December at Sutton Coldfield Town Hall. Superb quality. Many thanks. (July 2015)

Just to say a very big thank you! I ordered some puppets as part of our curate’s leaving present yesterday afternoon and I was very surprised when they were delivered first thing this morning!! Thanks so much! (June 2015)

Can I take the opportunity to thank you and One Way Ministry for the great resources and for the way you serve through the ministry. I have bought many things from you over the years and have always been blessed and encouraged by the attitude and help that I have received. Everyone has always gone out of their way to be helpful. I have used the puppets in assemblies, Kidz Clubs, open air events etc and they have always been well received and I know God has spoken to children (and adults) through them.Thank you. (June 2015)

May I say once again thank you to you and the team for the work you are doing and the inspiration and training you have given to Jayne and myself to promote our Puppet Ministry in and around our community of Gleadless in Sheffield. (May 2015)

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to One Way UK, I decided to treat myself yesterday and ordered
one of the parody CDs and the lyrics book. Imagine my surprise when it arrived today, you just don’t get service like that very often anymore. Thanks again. (April 2015)

Top quality puppets arrived yesterday. Thank you very much. I hope to buy from you again soon. (April 2015)

Just a very quick note from Corinne and I to thank you for the excellent day at Saltney yesterday. We both thoroughly enjoyed it, and despite eight hours of driving from South Wales the entire day was a pleasure. You have refreshed my ideas for reviving our small Baptist Church in a tiny village in Cumbria, and it was both a pleasure and a blessing to meet you. (April 2015)

Thank you so much for my custom puppet, it has been so much fun to use, and the service One Way provided was incredible. I will definitely be using the company again for stock puppets as well as future customs. (April 2015)

David Jones and his team at One Way UK have been the most fabulous company to work with, both extremely creative and super professional. They worked to a very tight deadline and I know they were working long into the night at times to fulfil our order. As well as designing and producing the puppets, they then delivered a very impressive puppetry workshop, my team were memorised and delighted. We are now working with the David and the team on a long term basis, designing and producing the most incredible puppets. (April 2015)

Thank you so much for the training today in Notts. We 4 loved it and gained so much, as we did last year in Sheffield. Thank you Ian and Jenny, very inspiring as ever and full of energy. We can’t wait to get back and have another go with our new resources we purchased. (March 2015)

My new school ordered four of the offer puppets yesterday (Slick Rick and his band) and they arrived really quickly THIS AFTERNOON. Thank you. Normally we have to wait weeks for orders to arrive. (February 2015)

2014 Feedback

Thank you so much for this AND ALL the amazing things you is a wonderful ministry. I had a great day at a local school assembly with the cracker puppet and able to share the full Christian gospel, such a privilege in this day and age. ALL the parents were there too and usually only a few turn up! You are all so precious and gifted THANK YOU again for the opportunities you give us. (December 2014)

I just had to email my appreciation at the speed in which my last order was dispatched (Christmas Cracker) the quality of the product and the usefulness at our Advent Sunday Parade Service. it provided a memorable message to many newcomers to our service. Thank you for your ministry and may God continue to use you in His service. (December 2014)

European Festival 2014 – I was so blessed by conference this year! Everything was absolutely amazing. The Academy team and showcase people were unbelievable! The competition entries were spectacular. God filled this whole weekend with His love and His spirit. Thank you to you all at One Way UK for working so hard to put it all together. God bless you guys. Counting the days until next year, you should do a twice yearly event! (November 2014) 

European Festival 2014 – The weekend as a whole was brilliant and such a blessing. The work you all put in was amazing. Last year I attended on my own and this year, I was able to bring the whole puppet team and they are all now buzzing with ideas like I was last year! I hope it will be at Rugby again and can’t wait for the date to be released so I can book up again. (November 2014)

European Festival 2014 – We at Pilgrim Puppets, felt it was the best European Festival you have organised. The workshops we went to were all of a very high standard. The Academy were brilliant! (November 2014)

European Festival 2014 – I just wanted to say thank you on behalf of our team for all the hard work you put into this year’s festival. We all had a great time and the kids have come away full of enthusiasm and ideas. (November 2014)

European Festival 2014 – The organization that went into the weekend was so clear but to me the thing that was so blatantly obvious was the amount of prayer surrounding the weekend in its entirety. During the set up all the way to the pack down even though it may not have seemed it at times every little thing was planned for a reason, just have to wait on God to find out what some of these reasons are. We kicked the festival off with the worship and the worship band were truly sensational filling the room with the Holy Spirit. The first day ended with the showcase, where the Academy team, myself included, along with the other acts put on an amazing show. This made many people ask many question on their way out at the end not only about the puppetry used but about the power of God. People went home with the best blessing imaginable.

The following day most returned to learn more and to feel more of God’s work. Once again the worship group made the most amazing start to the day, where I personally felt the Holy Spirit, what an amazing feeling too. The Lord blessed the collection making it the best ever. Towards the end of the day, some of the Academy team felt that a final performance of Victor’s Crown was a must. We went ahead and did this; some of the team became overwhelmed before during and after the performance. I think this is down to the amazing faith and strength within the team!

Once again thank you for the blessing you helped to organise and that was poured out because of the amazing God we love. (November 2014)

Just to say how pleased I am with the puppets that you helped create for me, they are exactly what I was hoping for and the quality is spot on. Thanks also for getting them ready earlier than planned. I look forward to starting work on our next project. (October 2014)

Thanks for the puppets. Superb quality and lovely to handle with no stiffness in the mouth. So relieved you are making puppets with glass eyes again because they match all our other puppets. Thank you for your consistently friendly service!! Bless you and your ministry. (October 2014)

The European Puppet Conference has become firmly fixed as a highlight of our year. We have so enjoyed the workshops, presentations and collective worship. I have been taking school assemblies for a number of years and one day a friend put a One Way UK training day leaflet in my Christmas card. She suggested we both go. At first, I thought me! Puppets! I don’t think so! But I went thinking it may come in useful in the schools work. That day about four years ago I fell in love with using puppets to share the Christian message. The passion of Mary and the team was so contagious.
From very humble beginnings, God has built a team around us and we have been given so many opportunities to share the gospel in schools, hospitals, parks. We have performed and shared the gospel at an Elvis festival and made a film advertising our local town placing God firmly at the centre.
We stand amazed at what God has done and can’t thank you all enough for the workshops and resources but best of all the European festival. (September 2014)

Thank you so much for a wonderful day. The five of us went home so excited about what we learned today. You were all fresh and inspiring. I think you can clearly see the enthusiasm we have for this ministry and it your vision and commitment to this work that sets you apart and encourages others. I thoroughly loved hearing your testimonies of how you all started out and the hearing how God has used you all. I pray that you are all blessed and continue to be anointed as you carry on working for God and seeking his face. (September 2014)

I just want to thank you for the speed of my delivery….we placed this order on Sunday and received the puppet in the post yesterday (Tuesday). (July 2014)

Thank you so much for the rods and spheres. Both perfect. You are a great company to deal with and I’ll let everyone in the puppet community know. Actually had an enquiry today from Portugal and passed your details on. (July 2014)

Thank you so much once again for your wonderful ministry to us, and your amazing puppets. Ruthie arrived safely yesterday (the day after I ordered her) and she was made very welcome! She is not suffering from too much ‘Jet-lag!’ so she will soon be out and about spreading the message of Jesus to all ages. God bless. (June 2014)

A HUGE thank you from me & St Michaels Double Act for getting the guitars to us so quickly! We have a performance on Sat to raise funds for a medical centre in Tanzania which our sister church is involved with and you have just saved one of the routines! (June 2014)

I wanted to let you know that ‘Poolside Puppets’ of Madeley Methodist Church (in North Staffordshire) are celebrating 10 years as a Christian Puppet Ministry this year and we are holding a 10th birthday event on Saturday 21st June, where we will be performing a number of our ‘greatest hits’. We can hardly believe it is 10 years since we tentatively embraced the fabric and foam creations in the form of the large people puppets! We soon caught ‘puppet fever’ and have not looked back. Over the years we have led and performed in numerous services in numerous churches locally and further afield as well as outdoors on a farm, ran training workshops, led school assemblies, supported children’s holiday clubs and performed at One Way festivals. We owe much to One Way UK; over the years we have been inspired by your team and other puppeteers at your festivals and training events, which have also been opportunities to worship alongside others with ‘puppet fever’, share ideas and learn so much – all of which has helped us develop our own Christian Ministry and style of worship. You have made available some fabulous puppets and fantastic resources, incredibly useful literature and a wealth of music. We have met many lovely people and are we truly grateful for these opportunities and all your advice and support over the years. We just wanted to let you know! God bless and many thanks, Gill Forrester (on behalf of Poolside Puppets: Making a ‘SplasH!’ for Jesus – ‘Serving, praising, loving and seeking Him!’) (June 2014)

Hi there! Have just received my new Butch puppet today. He’s great. Love the fact that he’s a bit lighter, lovely blue eyes, etc.. Have fallen for him in a big way!! (Don’t tell my husband!). (June 2014)

Thank you for your amazing service. I love the quality of the puppets and the stage and they arrived so fast. Thank you very much. (April 2014)

Thanks soooooo much David. Jesus puppet is a-ma-zing. You guys are awesome. Can’t wait to use him in church. (March 2014)

Thanks again to you all for all the help with the puppet order. We are really happy with everything and are looking forward to using them more in the coming months. (March 2014)

I’m just e-mailing to say thank you for Saturday, both the training and the praise party were fab. Quite a few people have told me how much they enjoyed the show and how spectacular the whole thing was. You really are very good at it. (March 2014)

My friends and I attended a training day at St Tim’s church on Sat (8th March) and I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed and appreciated the efforts of the team and especially Ian whose injured leg did not hold him back from his infectious enthusiasm (hope it’s feeling better Ian?) We cannot thank you all enough for your energy, expertise and generosity towards everyone there. What a day!! Absolutely fantastic… and to top it all the ‘Praise Party’ in the evening… we learned so much and went away fired up and ready to go… Thank you so much. (March 2014)

Ordered yesterday afternoon – delivered this morning! Wow! Well done you and GPO. Thank you. (January 2014)

2013 Feedback

I would be delighted if would use my feedback, anything to help your company develop and continue to do well with such a wonderful product. I meant it when I said you deserved to do well. It is so refreshing to find a business these days who actually care about more than their profit margins but who take the time to think and communicate with the customers and recipient of the product. Your puppets are reasonably priced, characterful and well made, they are of a size that will fit standard baby cloths so the girls will be able to choose things for their new puppets to wear from mainstream shops rather than being restricted to specific outlets and your delivery is prompt and efficient even at peak times like a week before Christmas! Thank you for making these surprises possible, especially for granddad, who is the biggest of all the children! Happy Christmas to you all and a prosperous new year! (December 2013)

I wanted to write and thank you for the delivery of the puppet arm rods which arrived today – thank you so much again and we are really looking forward to the Nativity scene tomorrow – thank you again! (December 2013)

I have used you many times for purchase of equipment and you also started our team off at Counterslip with our first training there many years ago. We also recently brought colleagues from work, who have joined a puppet ministry at another church in Bristol , along to your puppet training day which they really enjoyed and went away with lots of new ideas and of course a few more puppets. On Saturday I was able to give you a plug for yet another puppet ministry just starting up in Bristol who attended our Children’s ‘Ark does Christmas’. They liked the parody music we had used which again was purchased from yourselves so I have sent them your way. It is great to have such a resourceful, reliable and trustworthy website to be able to help those who are just starting up. Bucket loads of blessings to you and your team. (December 2013)

Thank you so much for the speedy response. It is very much appreciated and, although Slick Rick is a Christmas present for my husband, he will be a great addition to our ever growing collection of Puppets which are used for the Puppet Ministry at The Ark which is part of Counterslip Baptist Church, Bristol. Thank you once again and may God bless you and yours this Christmastime and throughout the coming year. (December 2013)

Thanks so much for this and for all your help David. We will look to order again from you for sure.

Best wishes for the Festive Season. (December 2013)

Can I say how impressed I am with your service and your product! The puppets are for my granddaughters who fell in love with them at church this week when asked to use them as part of the nativity on Sunday. We had not seen anything like them and expected they would be, A, unreasonably expensive, B, impossible to get hold of or C, impossible to receive so close to Christmas. They came this morning and are just perfect, thank you so much so have made two girls very happy and grandpa Albert in going to be an extra surprise for my husband too. Have a very wonderful Christmas and I hope your company prospers in the new year, it certainly deserves to. (December 2013)

I am so grateful for your prompt reply last week and for dispatching my order so fast. I was stunned when I received it the following day. I am definitely placing another order this week. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Thank you for a fab fab weekend. We really had a blessed time. The venue was great, spacious airy (apart from lip sync challenge room). It was a real eye popper to see all the merchandise laid out and for the first timer it must have looked like Christmas. The friendly staff, excellent food and real easy to find venue at first attempt. David’s light show what can I say! Academy presentation very good especially on that big stage. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team great and small for a first class event in a relaxed environment. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – This is the first time I have attended the European Puppet Festival, having only been introduced to puppets back in the spring on one of your training days at our church. Having no idea of what to expect (apart from what I was able to read about on your site), I wasn’t sure if it was right for me being such a ‘newbie’. I have to say firstly that within minutes of arriving, I felt at ease. Even the parking attendants were cheerful (not something you can usually say). I have had so much inspiration, not only from the workshops, but also seeing the other puppeteers at work in the competitions and talking to other people. Having reported back to the church, You may well see several of us next year, and who knows, we may even be brave enough to enter a competition. I just wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone who put in such effort to make the whole event enjoyable and informative. I can’t wait until next year and in the meantime, I hope to put to good use the things I have learnt Thank you. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Thank you for yet another great couple of days. We had a fantastic time meeting old friends and new and picked up some inspiration along the way. We didn’t win anything this time but there’s always next year. We came back empty handed but our hearts filled. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Thanks for a great festival. We had a great time, and able to sleep in our own beds! We do appreciate all the hard work you do. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Well done all the team. All of the hard work that you put in paid off. The atmosphere was good and people that were first timers seemed at ease. From a selfish point of view the location was just right. Only having one event this year made it seem more important to be there. Because there was only one event the competitions were of a lot higher standard and that can only be credited to you’re training. The catering arrangements could not be faulted something for all and at not at rip off prices. After you have sorted all the photos of the weekend those that did not attend will be regretting the fact they missed it. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Just a quick email to say thank you for organising the Puppet festival, and for your support and encouragement. The Puppets Aloud team, had a fab time we have all come away full of ideas and motivation. Our members have been so encouraged and their confidence has grown enormously as a result of being part of the academy team – thank you David and Fiona for investing you time and sharing your skills and knowledge. One of our team was very touched by the song ‘God of Angel Armies’ and she has decided to get baptised as a result! Once again thanks for all your hard work. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Wow! Great event guys, My Pastor what’s to know the dates of next year’s so we can booked it out on the calendar! Also Custard is already practicing for the comp!! Watch Out, Custard’s Magic Parables are on the way! My first conference and I have to say it was amazing, I enjoyed every second and learned so much too. The atmosphere was great. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful and the hard work and preparation you guys had put in was clear. Thank you so much. Really looking forward to next year. Liz (Steps of Faith). Awesome conference. Thank you all. Steps of Faith have had such a wonderful time and learned a lot. Can’t wait for next year! (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – An excellent weekend, have come back with lots of good ideas and inspired to get into some more school assemblies before Christmas. Well done and thank you. (November 2013)

European Festivals 2013 – Thanks for putting on a great training event again this year. We loved everything about the two days and the venue was superb and a lot cheaper and easier to get to for us from Scarborough. Please pass on our thanks to all the team. Many thanks and looking forward to next year already. (November 2013)

Just a brief thank you from sunny Tenerife. I was happy I had done the course and it confirmed puppets are for me. I’ve had God nagging at me for a while and I didn’t see me in a pulpit on my own, but with a puppet to lean on, I know for sure a good message can be put across more in my style. Thanks for all the advice and encouragement. I’ll debrief with my pastor soon and type myself some notes before I hurtle into a Vintage Tea Extravaganza a church fundraising even I find myself volunteering to do. I have an invisible sign on my forehead which says ‘Volunteer’. It has got me into some wonderful scrapes over the years and much fun. Thank you again. (October 2013)

Thank you so much for the speedy delivery of the puppet. You have made one 11 year old very happy on her birthday! (September 2013)

I thought you might like to know. A couple of years ago (or more) I attended a day workshop you lead at our church St. John’s, Widnes. Puppet ministry was something I had been involved with MANY years ago. I was invited by friends in church who thought it might be something I would get involved with again. I loved the Dog-in-a-Bag idea and bought a white dog plus some of your scripts. Subsequently I introduced him to the children in a Family Service one Sunday morning. They voted for a name “Snowy”. Snowy has become a firm favourite with children of all ages. He has quite a fan club and is now on actually on the monthly ‘preaching’ rota. He takes me along for back-up! Snowy and I now write our own ‘scripts’. Does the word ‘retirement’ appear in the Bible? Thank you. (July 2013)

I just wanted to say, thank you so much for a great day on Saturday. Both myself and the lady I came with (Calley Bell) had a fantastic day! (June 2013)

Thank you so much for the wonderful puppets and the fantastic shopping experience we had with you! You can quote me on your website as a very satisfied customer, Thanks once again. (June 2013)

Thank you Ian and Jenny had a brilliant training day on Saturday at Chorley. My new chicken, Cluck, can’t wait to meet our other puppets and spread the Joy. God bless and thank you again, Julie. (June 2013)

Thanks for an absolutely brilliant Training Day at Chorley United Reform Church today. Have learnt new techniques, got loads of ideas and am looking forward to working with my puppets. Thanks again! (June 2013)

Hi, thank you so much everyone at ‘One Way’ I am delighted with my ‘Dog in a Bag’, I phoned at lunchtime to place the order and Rover was delivered the next morning! He has opened up a new and exciting way of sharing the message of Jesus to Junior Church and also to the nursing homes that I visit. We decided to give him a new name, he is no longer Rover but Ivor and his full name is Ivor Mission. Because he is on a mission to tell people about Jesus! God Bless, Pat. (June 2013)

My puppets have arrived safe and well (the rock breathed a sigh of relief when I took the onion out of the box!). They are absolutely brilliant. Thank you very much indeed. Regards, Barry (May 2013)

We just wanted to drop you a short note to thank you for a splendid day on Saturday… it exceeded our expectations, and church was buzzing yesterday morning with various ideas of when, where and how we could start using Rebecca, Snail & Pace, and some of the other characters we have acquired! (May 2013)

We wanted to say a big thank you to all your team for organising the training last weekend at Tiverton. I took four youngsters, we learned a lot and we had a brilliant time. I especially wanted to thank Mary and her family for all they did. They were all really great at engaging with my teens, encouraging us with our puppetry and giving us lots of new ideas to use. We were all blown away by Kezia’s rod work and left the training determined to improve ours. (April 2013)

Thank you so very much for your daily devotionals. I look forward to reading them each day as they bless me with my walk with the Lord. I pray this message in turn encourages you with this vital ministry and in a way, returns back to you in the spirit of Isaiah 55:11. Thank You and Bless You. (April 2013)

Thank you for such excellent service! I ordered these CD’s on Monday and they were with me on Wednesday which enabled us to use one of the songs in two separate services on Thursday. What a blessing! Happy Easter to all the team. (March 2013)

Thank you for your quick and efficient service. (February 2013)

You are a great company – Brilliant speed of delivery – ordered pm Monday, New Year’s Eve. No doubt you were closed on Tuesday, despatched Wednesday and arrived here on Thursday – Excellent! (January 2013)

2012 Feedback

Just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU for your excellent service. When my “Dog in a Bag” went missing last weekend I never thought you would be able to get one to me in time for this week’s show. The lady I spoke to in the office about the order I had placed on the website was marvellous, so helpful and totally understanding. “Scruff” duly arrived by next day delivery. THANKS A MILLION. The show went ahead with barely a hitch (and no puppet hitches!) And the children (as always) loved the “special visitor”. Many, many thanks. (December 2012)

Thank you for all your support. The performance at the nursery went really well, thanks to God. Some of the children would not leave the room hoping that there were more songs to come. The staff loved it and the owner of the nursery gave us a cheque to buy a puppet. Once that clears we will be ordering a camel! It was great to feel the Lord uplifting the whole performance. A couple of the staff mentioned that three of the children who never sit for more than a minute at a time were transfixed and didn’t want to say goodbye to us. (December 2012)

I have been very impressed with the UV puppets and I’ll certainly be purchasing more for next year’s Pantomime! Excellent customer service too. Thank you, Alison. (December 2012)

Only ordered the CD yesterday and it was on our doorstep this morning – amazing service as always! (November 2012)

Hi friends, a quick note to say thank you so much for the day on Saturday at Felixstowe. Kandi Floss is now engaged to Captain Ketchup – and has a purple heart shaped ring to prove it – and made her debut at a baptism yesterday using the bones of the script on royalty – she does look rather fetching in a tiara…… Many blessings on your ministry and thank you. (November 2012)

Thank you very much for your help by supplying stock and prayers for our puppet and hand bell event at All Saints High Wycombe on October 14th. This event helped to promote the church as a place of welcome, fun and creativity. Not only that – we raised £380 towards RingAppeal. Thank you so much for all your help, we have had a lot of feedback saying this was a really good day and this is because of the contribution you made. (November 2012)

European Festivals 2012 – This is a belated thank you for all your hard work in setting up and running the Reading Festival. We had a WONDERFUL TIME. Our younger members were so miffed that last year they only got to see the workings of the Academy production and not the full works because they had opted just to attend on the Saturday. As a result we (Rob, Judy and I) bought 6 youngsters for the whole weekend. Most of them had only joined our team in September but they made themselves at home really quickly and made the most of all that you had to offer. We have all come away with so many new ideas. The workshops were brilliant and we have a wide range of memories of what they had to offer. Our youngsters and us were inspired. So well done to you and the team of trainers.(November 2012)

European Festivals 2012 – Excellently organised. Thought the worship and Andy Holmes/Ian’s contribution showed what could be done with puppets and was good fun. All the One Way UK team had lovely smiles and were very helpful, even towards the end when they must have been really tired! (November 2012)

European Festivals 2012 – Love the range of talent presented throughout, the structure of both days is fantastic. It’s been fantastic to engage with professionals in such a welcoming atmosphere and opening the Christian message in new ways! (November 2012)
