Three female priests link our stories with those of the Reverend Geraldine Granger and other TV vicars.

In this podcast, we hope to go through episodes of the beloved 'Vicar of Dibley' and chat about our experiences as vicars and how close the TV show is to real life. We hope this gives a bit of an insight into the life of female priests and explain the bonkers joy that is being a woman of the cloth.

Love it!

I love listening in to these conversations about clergy life. Jenny, Ruthie and Cate manage to blend fun and laughter with deeper reflections on faith and ministry.
