Pastor Fired for Singing Without Mask

“Rev. Charlie Boyle, vicar of All Saints Church, Brankscome, Dorset, is facing disciplinary action and potential dismissal for allegedly not following strict Covid guidance at his church. ‘The fact that someone would report me to the church authorities over this is quite upsetting,’ he confides. Following a complaint made on Easter Sunday about him walking down the aisle singing the hymn ‘Thine Be The Glory’ without wearing a face mask, Charlie was visited by the Archdeacon of Dorset, who told him that he should leave his post and the vicarage by the end of July.”
