Neil Fisher returns from ordination inspired by his sense of ministry, but determined to distance himself from the two ladies in his life. This is not altogether well received, and a wide segment of the congregation of St Stephen’s, Dunbridge — including the music group — points Neil to the error of his ways.

Churchwarden Peter has said a relieved farewell to his flighty wife Glenda — or has he? Dunbridge is not as peaceful as it seems.
