Priest Idol?
Just been watching Channel 4's new series "Priest Idol".
Naff name, but interesting viewing! It follows a South Yorkshire parish, trying to turn things around. They hire a new vicar from the USA, and even an advertising/PR agency.
Interesting that the parishioners and the vicar are keen to attract young people. The priest, James, seems to be a bit naive, but willing to engage in mission.
The PR agency came out with some classic lines about the difficulties of attracting teenagers to church! It'll be interesting to see what they bring to the table.
The local stand up comic described getting teenagers to church as like "plaiting fog"!
Should be a good series.
