An Island Parish: Series 1

An Island Parish: Series 1

The Bishop is urgently seeking a new parish priest following the resignation of the previous chaplain – and it has one of the oddest job descriptions in the Church of England.

With a population of not even 2000, the Scillies need someone who can be the high-profile figurehead and provide spiritual inspiration for a feudal society that is reminiscent of an England of a hundred years ago – who also mustn’t suffer seasickness.
