Reverend Percival Peabody has the unenviable task of tending to his flock in the sleepy little Suffolk village of Lower South-Borough. He owns a rather disturbed moggie, is always in the wrong place at the wrong time and struggles to maintain his sanity as well as any semblance of order. Well, that was at least until now.
His fondness for the traditional pastime of bowling suddenly upsets his well balanced life with hilarious results. Once again he gathers his temperamental, flirtatious and potentially insane parishioners as they prepare for the winter season. Unfortunately, pursuits of passion, the love of one-upmanship, playful shenanigans and sheer mayhem systematically reduce all previously arranged and well organized plans to total chaos.
