Rev season 3 episodes list:
Reverend Adam Smallbone and his wife Alex adjust to life as new parents in the inner city parish of St Saviour's, Hackney. How will Adam cope with parenthood on top of his small but demanding congregation? Can he manage being a father and a Father? Adam's wife Alex gives birth to their daughter in dramatic circumstances. Adam teams up with a local imam to help improve the community - but is his new colleague friend or foe? Plus the new area dean and diocesan secretary clearly have it in for St Saviour's. Can Adam save his church from their parish reorganisation plans?
Adam's put on the spot when two of his and Alex's friends ask him to marry them. Of course he'd love to but there's one problem: they're gay and the C of E have a tiny bit of a problem with gay marriage. Meanwhile, Adam signs up for a course on how to save his church - led by Roland Wise. Is Roland's explosive IED (Invade - Evangelise - Deliver) approach to ministry the answer to Adam's prayers? Probably not.
Adam is intrigued when a local artist, Mike Tobin, offers to make a £60k donation to St Saviour's. Finally the Lord has provided a solution to Adam's financial problems. Nothing will go wrong (everything goes wrong). Meanwhile Adam ropes Ellie in to his campaign against some local litter louts.
Father Adam faces one of the biggest challenges of his ministry when a difficult new parishioner begins attending St Saviour's. The position of church treasurer is vacant and Adam has found the ideal candidate to turn the church's dire finances around. OK, so he has a conviction for viewing child abuse images online. But he's found solace, redemption and rehabilitation through the church. If the church isn't for forgiveness then what is it for? Meanwhile when Adam's own transgressions come back to haunt him, he ends up sofa surfing at Nigel's flat and Colin's homeless hostel.
Adam's shocked when he discovers that Nigel has reported him to the bishop for conduct unbecoming. As the archdeacon investigates Nigel's complaint, Adam begins to seriously doubt his calling. Maybe he's not cut out to be a vicar after all?
St Saviour's is closed and Adam is determined to become a management consultant. But what will his not-so-merry-band of congregants do without their vicar and their church? And can Adam really shrug off his vocation and his parishioners so easily?
