Description

Vicar dresses up as a rough sleeper to see how people would treat him.

Taking to the streets of Reading, Bible Society put kindness to the test.

Baptist minister, Rev Sam King, asked people if he could borrow their mobile phone to make a call. He then dressed in scruffy clothing and asked the same question.

The video has an underlying theme of the Good Samaritan. Rev Sam explores how powerful those acts of kindness and love felt when he was no longer dressed as a clergyman.
