Priest by day, writer at odd times of the day and night, I live with a small green parrot called Tilly because the upkeep for a dragon is beyond my current budget. Plus I’m responsible for making good any flame damage to church property. I love ‘Doctor Who’, landscape photography, single malt whisky, and my job, in no particular order. When I’m not looking after a small parish church in the Midlands (England) I like to go on far flung adventures to places like Peru, New Zealand, and North Korea.

I have consulted Penny, and she has just returned from the final challenge set by Morey's gryphon clan. Everything has been documented, but she is asking some people with sharp eyes and even sharper pencils to check for typos. Your wait will end in a few weeks' time, so hang on in there!

In England and Wales (I don't really know about Scotland) a number of public schools are church schools. Long before education was available to all, local churches started to educate the poor. These were only basic lessons in numeracy and literacy (with some biblical teaching), but as time went the school system developed to what it is today. Most of these church schools attract children from the local populace, and usually there is no requirement that either the child nor the teachers are practicing Christians. The amount of emphasis given to Christianity in the school varies widely, but the schools are meant to have a short act of worship every day. Usually the local vicar will take one of those either weekly or fortnightly. Some schools call this 'worship' but most call this 'assembly' (because the entire school assembles for it). The vicar will also usually be on the governing body, as will at least two of the church members. Here's a bit more information: https://www.churchofengland.org/educa...
