Excerpt from the Sunday Times 31st December 2007
A pilgrim’s physical progress
Who’s the bravest vicar in Britain? My money’s on Peter Owen Jones. No typical sherry-sipper, this man started as a farm labourer and ran a mobile disco on the side. He then moved into advertising, but heard the Call and became vicar of a parish in Cambridgeshire.
Now, 15 years later, he feels that the Church of England is too much a faith of the head and not enough a faith of the soul. So he set off on a quest in search of a more physical and mystical path to enlightenment.
All surplus funds raised from the evening will go to support the Education Department's Family Fun Days in 2011.
