THEY wouldn't have caught much fish for breakfast in the Sea of Galilee, these clergy from St Albans diocese who got themselves in such a tangle casting a net from their improvised boat (right), but it provoked so much hilarity that they were heard all over the diocesan offices.

It was the afternoon of a training day for 25 clergy, run by the diocesan RE adviser, Jane Chipperton, who had brought in as trainers the Ven. Trevor Reader, Archdeacon of the Isle of Wight, and Lilian Weatherley, RE adviser for Winchester. The morning was given to the part the clergy play in church schools, statutory matters, and working with governing bodies. The afternoon was more creative, and encouraged ideas for collective worship and reaching children who have little contact with the Church.

That was when the fun began. The day was so oversubscribed that Mrs Chipperton tells me that they are re-running it in January for another 25 clergy.
