Meet Chris and Caroline Barrow, the Yorkshire pub landlords who serve up more than a decent pint.


We’ll drink to that… Regulars at a popular watering hole in the North of England get prayer with their pints, as Becky Barlow discovered

The couple run the Flying Ferret in the West Yorkshire village of Shelly and as well as hosting Alpha and Christianity Explored courses, they offer regulars prayer and counsel too. Walls are adorned with Bible verses and there have been reports of healing miracles.

“We’re just an ordinary couple who believe in the power of prayer,” says Caroline. “We don’t force our beliefs on others, but more and more people are coming in asking for prayer and seeing prayers answered. It’s astounding.”

The Barrows are backed up by their church – Holme Valley Elim - and worship nights have recently been held in the pub, much to the delight of locals who have warmed to the unusual idea.
