Well this made us sit up and pay attention!

A church on the Gold Coast has turned heads with their, um, interesting sign. 

The Anglican Church Of The Holy Spirit have posted a sign that states “Forgiveness is swallowing when you’d rather spit’. 

Now APPARENTLY (according to a spokesperson for the church) they aren’t referencing what you may think they are referencing… 

In fact the sign allegedly has a much more innocent meaning. 


“You don’t open your mouth and yell at somebody, you close your mouth and swallow,” a spokesperson told News limited. 

“If you want to say something, keep your mouth closed for a bit.

“Swallow it, don’t spit it out.”


Even MP John-Paul Langbroek had a laugh at the sign saying, “Church signs done differently”.

“This will get the punters in.”
