The film begins in black and white and shows the arrival of parishioners, clergy and the Bishop for the induction of Reverend Goldsmid to the church of St. Mary the Virgin. This is followed, in colour, by scenes of the Reverend greeting his parishioners outside the church, in their Sunday best, after a service. At the Summer fete of August 19th 1965, the villagers chat to the Reverend, play games, and enjoy refreshments from a 'Coca Cola' stand and cake stall. After a shot of the outside of King Ethelbert pub and the coastal bus, a Salvation Army band leads the choir and parishioners to the ruins of the mediaeval church of St. Mary. In the ruins on the cliffs, an outdoor church service is held.
