Investigative journalist Lucy Cooper has spent ten years making award-winning podcasts and documentaries such as Big Ring - A Circus Exposé, Chicken Alcatraz - A Long Walk to Freedom and Fat Dog - Body Shaming at Crufts. Now, she's turning her attention to the Church of England.

Having been flag bearer for her local Brownies at Sunday service in 1990, she revisits the religion of her youth. But in the intervening years, the world has changed and we're living in less innocent, more narcissistic times. And so Lucy poses the question - in a world of bum implants and super yachts, is there room for God anymore?

Following three vicars in their everyday lives working in parishes in the north east of England, Lucy is on a mission to find out, over the course of a year, what keeps them working for the man upstairs (God).
