A MAN has publicly apologised for causing more than $58,000 damage to a Brisbane church during a drunken spree.

The Brisbane District Court was today told Brisbane store worker Patrick Colin Thompson, 25, got heavily drunk and trashed the Pilgrim Congregational Church in Bardon on June 24 last year.

He pleaded guilty today to one count each of common assault, break and enter to commit wilful damage, serious assault and assaulting a police officer.

The court was told Thompson had caught a taxi from outside Brisbane's Treasury Casino early that morning after an all-night drinking session.

When he arrived in Bardon he became embroiled in an argument over the fare with the driver, whom he punched in the back of the head before leaving the cab.

Thompson then broke into the nearby church and destroyed its interior.

Police found him later that morning, fast asleep among the damage, estimated to be worth $58,158.

The damage included a smashed stained glass window which had been donated by a parishioner in memory of her husband.

The court was told Thompson lashed out at police when they tried to wake him, punching one and kicking another.

He also tried to punch the police dog, which bit him.

Thompson later told police he didn't remember any of the night's events, and that he was truly sorry.

The court was today told he had since undertaken extensive alcohol abuse therapy, and that he had expressed an interest in helping the church.

Judge Tony Rafter sentenced Thompson to 18 months jail but ordered he be released immediately on parole.

He was also ordered to repay $58,158 to the church.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.
