It’s hell being a vicar…
Meet The Rev. Adam Smallbone. He’s a Church of England Vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the busy, inner-city world of St Saviour’s in Hackney, East London. It’s a world he has no experience of. And it shows. It really shows.
Rev. is an authentic--albeit highly comic--portrait of the life of a modern, inner-city vicar. Heavily researched and supported by anecdotes from a number of working city vicars and church insiders it lifts the lid on how the modern church actually functions, and what life is really like in a dog collar.

Adam Smallbone. He's a Church of England vicar, newly promoted from a sleepy rural parish to the busy, inner-city world of St Saviour's in Hackney, East London. It's a world he has no experience of. And it shows. It really shows. Alex - Adam's long-suffering wife - does her best to support him, but she's got her own career as a solicitor to worry about. And she is no-one's idea of a conventional vicar's wife. Anybody can and does come into St Saviour's - from scheming MPs trying to educate their children on the cheap to Colin, a heavy drinking, unemployable lost soul... Rev. is an authentic, albeit highly comic, portrait of the life of a modern, inner-city vicar.
