Matt Woodcock returns with this sequel to the bestselling ‘Becoming Reverend’.

Follow Matt’s journey as he starts work at one of Hull’s oldest, biggest and emptiest churches. It’s a shadow of its former self, with a small congregation and huge bills to pay. Adding the entrepreneurial (and somewhat excitable) Matt to their clergy line-up is the last throw of the dice for this 700-year-old institution.

But is Matt ready for such a tough first assignment? Are his new flock – or his new colleagues – ready for the whirlwind that’s about to descend? And can Matt realize his vision of a thriving church without wrecking his home life in the process?

As this real-life diary reveals, Matt’s life being Reverend can be every bit as fraught, funny and fascinating as it was becoming one.

Matt Woodcock

A former newspaper journalist, Matt Woodcock is now a Church of England minister in Hull. He puts on a sell-out beer festival in his church every year and walks real camels down Hull's main shopping street at Christmas.

'I have known Matt Woodcock for a number of years and it was my privilege to ordain him. God's Holy Spirit dwells in him, taking him on an adventurous Jesus-shaped journey. Matt writes with his characteristic humour and honesty. It's a story of God's love. In reading this book, let's all find God's loving heart for each of us.' -- Archbishop John Sentamu
