bath robe 1In an effort to make the Church of England more ‘relevent’ in a society where attention spans have become shorter and shorter along with religious congregations, and where young minds are influenced by a trillion internet images, the C of E Synod has agreed that vicars may ‘dress down’ for religious services, including weddings and funerals. So off come the cassocks & dog collars, in favour of ‘casual wear’, including jeans, sweatshirts and sneakers! Since Milan designer Victor Vatican now dresses Catholic Archbishops, I suppose it is only a matter of time before British ‘avant garde’ designer Vivienne Westwood is approached to dress Church of England vicars! Let’s hope ‘sky pilots’ don’t attend Sunday services wearing Terry cloth bath robes or Ali ‘G’ shell suits!
