Life Mirrors "First Baptist Bar And Grill"

Tim Wilson's First Baptist Bar And Grill is about a church that holds services in a bar while its burnt-down edifice is being rebuilt. This Ananova story is about a church converted into a bar - and how the former pastor got thrown out of it:

A minister has been ejected from a nightclub in a former church where he used to preach.

The Rev Bob Brown thought he would be on safe ground collecting for charity in Aberdeen's Soul Bar, reports the Scotsman.

But minutes after getting permission to enter from one member of staff, he was thrown out by a manager who had not been consulted.

Mr Brown, the brother of the former Scotland manager Craig Brown, said: "I thought it was quite ironic that we were asked to leave.

"The old pulpit is still in the building and I used to stand behind it and preach when the building was a church.
