Episode titles and lengths

Episode 1: It's All About Grace  21:45
Igor has eaten Mr Grumpy’s very special cake, and Mr Grumpy is not happy (what’s new?!) But Igor is determined to earn back his love. Can he do it? Does he need to do it? Igor and Mr Grumpy learn an important lesson about grace.

Episode 2: Mr Grumpy 22:47
Mr Grumpy starts the day well... he's on the way to his favourite Tea-drinking conference (the Intergalactic Tea Imbibers National Conference). But it's not long before things start going wrong. He's going to learn a valuable lesson about God being in charge, not us and how that's far, far better... A special FX laden episode! Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Episode 3: You're Loved 18:39
Septima is busy ticking off things on her list… much to the annoyance of the rest of the crew! She’s so determined to be helpful that she’s even fixing things that don’t need fixing yet. But she discovers something wonderful about what it really means to belong.

Episode 4: Jesus is Better Than Santa 18:37
It’s Christmas Eve and Mr Grumpy has just realised that he’s been grumpy… all year! He’s got to do something quickly to get onto Santa’s nice list, with hilarious consequences. Thankfully God has a list too, but it’s a bit different…

Episode 5: There's a Party Coming Soon 20:27
Septima is having a birthday party and everyone is invited… except Captain Archibald (or so he thinks). He’ll stop at nothing to get into the party, with hilarious results! Archibald finds out that God has an even better party planned.

Episode 6: Relentless Love 20:52
In spite of the crew being truly inept they are somehow up for the Founder’s Faithful Service Award! Until Archibald accidentally sends a blooper reel of all their mistakes and failings to the Founder himself… Will they have the reward taken away? Or worse, will they be banished forever for their failure?? The crew make a wonderful discovery about God's relentless love.
