A vicar in Northumberland has come up with a novel new way of "bringing in the sheep" Back and to the Left news investigates.

Rev John Thomas of The Holy Mother, Father and Stepson Trinity Church in Wigglesworth Northumberland has stepped up his campaign to make church more interesting.

"I've always been a big fan of public spectacles and I don't see why church can't be one of them. The church of England can learn a lot from TV talent shows such as Britons Got Talent and the X-Factor but not The Voice."

The Rev who has kick started this new trend for church services has also launched his own pod cast called "Sixty-Second-Sermons" in which he raps out verses of the Bible.

"I just think that kids have grown disinterested in the church and because they don't even fear Gods wrath anymore we can't scare them into coming."

We asked the Rev what special things he was putting on during his services.

"I'm a trained fire eater. I can spit a tongue of flame up to fifty meters long."

As we know men are always exaggerating about size so we didn't take this boast too seriously. We did think though that he maybe infringing on a little bit of copy write here. Wasn't there already a guy in religion who can spit fire, a big red guy we seem to remember?
