Rev Richard Coles at the Chiddingstone Literary Festival

RH & RW Clutton was delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor a session by the Rev. Richard Coles at the Chiddingstone Literary Festival on 1 May. Richard Coles was in conversation with Nicolette Jones discussing his new book "Bringing in the Sheaves: Wheat and Chaff from My Years as a Priest".   After a life of sex, drugs and the Communards, the Reverend Richard Coles has devoted himself to Christianity. He is now Vicar of Finedon, as well as a much loved presenter of Radio 4’s Saturday Live, and a regular on Radio 2’s Pause for Thought. What is life like for the parson in Britain today? For centuries the Church calendar - and the Church parson - gave character and personality to British life. Today however, as faith is no longer as privileged or persuasive, that figure has become far more marginal. With a unique insight into his daily ministry, he describes the joy, drama, difficulty and humour which life - and indeed death - serves up. Nicolette Jones is a writer, critic and broadcaster, and author of The Plimsoll Sensation.

Richard Coles was highly entertaining and we enjoyed his unique take on life and his humorous anecdotes about his life as a parish priest. 

This is the second year RH & RW Clutton has sponsored an event at the Chiddingstone Literary Festival.
