Pete McCahon Comedy Trophy winner

Not awarded every year this is for outstanding comedy only. When announced the roar from the audience showed it NEEDED to be awarded to only one man. Congratulations Torbjorn

For Exceptional Service

Richard was surprised by an award that he knew nothing about. We have many dedicated people that help run the CMUK. Richard does so much. treasurer, training days, conference committee, virtual conference, tickets, tech desk, welcome desk. He has also served for as long as I can remember. If you were to ask who has done most for the CMUK over the past decade then everybody to a man would say Richard Colpus. Sir, we salute you.

Welcome to Christian Magicians UK

Christian Magicians UK are a group of Christian entertainers, who use their performing skills to spread the Good News about Jesus Christ.  The tricks that are performed are either used as “visual aids” (for example escaping from a pair of handcuffs and talking about how “Christ has set us free” – Galatians 5v1), or simply to attract and engage an audience. We would never claim to have ‘special powers’. It is just used an effective method of presenting the Gospel in a clear and memorable way.

So what skills do you need if you want to try Gospel Magic?  Well, probably not the ones that immediately spring to mind!  Perhaps the most important skills are “people skills” – being confident; being able to make eye contact; being able to communicate clearly.  You might take these for granted, but so many performers think it’s all about the trick, that they forget the primary purpose – to entertain, and (if appropriate) share the Gospel.


Some tricks can be learnt in minutes, others take years.  Most magic sets, or books on magic from the library, are aimed at beginners and focus on simple tricks that anyone can do. This is the best way to start. Each year we have a national conference (along with several regional events) which include lectures, hands on workshops and shows. Our Voila magazine provides ideas to help members develop their magic and entertainment skills to enable them to share their faith through good magic.

Membership is open to Christian magicians of all denominations and it would be great to meet you sometime.

So why not come and be part a like minded group of people from all denominations? Learn from the best with many of our members Internationally acclaimed professional magicians. Many are members of the renowned magic circle London. From accomplished amateurs. Beginners, intermediate, or advanced we are just one big magical family.  We exist to help you at the level you are at NOW. So keep reading to see how we can help you continue or even start your magical journey.
