Publisher: Canterbury Press Norwich
ISBN: 9781853116896
Published: 31/01/2006
In the literary tradition of Parson Woodforde and Georges Bernanos, here is the moving, wise and funny diary of a country vicar at the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st, it raises profound questions about the nature of ministry and the future of the church through its gentle yet acutely observed portraits and stories. Previously self published under the title "Church Wardens I Have Buried", it is used as a text book on ministerial training course.

Timothy Biles

TIMOTHY BILES was a journalist before he became a priest in the Church of England. He worked in country parishes for over 30 years, mainly in West Dorset in the the Diocese of Salisbury and was also at the forefront of the diocese's work in support Sudan. An avid sports fan and now retired, he lives in Sherborne.

"I can thoroughly recommend In Every Corner Sing to all who would like to have a snapshot of rural ministry in the Church of England today - its joys and sorrows, its stresses and triumphs. I will want to dip into it again to feel encouraged in my own ministry and the sense that it is all so very worth while." Andrew Thomson, Rector of a rural multi-parish benefice in Norfolk and a Priest Associate of SLG. Fairacres Chronicle. Summer 2006. Vol 39, No.1

"There are books that, when you sit to read them, grip you so much that you cannot get up until they are finished. (...) The diary narrative is captivating, including Christmas and ending at Easter, in an Anglican team ministry in rural Dorset." Simon Martin, Country way, Autumn 2006, N°43.
