Colin Braithwaite, a northern vicar, has bought some trainers that were briefly popular in the 1980s.
He told us 'I saw these trainers on-line on eBay and thought that what I need as a trendy vicar, is some trendy trainers, to go with my trendy taste in music, I like Bros. Do you like Bros? I like Leo Sayer as well, put him on, and I will be on the dance-floor before you can say grace'.
Braithwaite's congregation is currently only four, with the youngest, Elsie, being 79.
"Oh God," said Braithwaite, "I need to get some younger people into the church. I hear they all like Lionel Richie these days. Is that right? Is it? Hello, are you still there?"
