As newly appointed Vicar of Helmsley, David Wilbourne was looking forward to working in the picturesque market town. Admittedly the twelfth century vicarage was extremely cold and damp - and not all his parishioners were impressed… Enjoy a delicious Bettys two course Yorkshire supper before being entertained by David Wilbourne, Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, with stories of rural Yorkshire clerical life.

David Wilbourne has spent the majority of his ministry in Yorkshire, and was Vicar of Helmsley for twelve years. In 2009 he was consecrated Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, working with the Archbishop of Wales. He is also a writer and broadcaster.
