Clergy On The Catwalk with Molly The Wally!

The Ideal Church Show, Clergy On The Catwalk.

Gorgeous robes are not just for Popes and archbishops and here in Manchester we have the clergy on the catwalk annual show. The modelling ministers are showing off the latest designs at an annual Christian event nicknamed ‘The Ideal Church Show’ this week. But some of the outfits, from an electric blue dress for female clergy to a full Easter tableau on the front of a flowing white smock, may shock traditionalists who make a ‘habit’ of a simple dog collar. Gone are the 50 shades of grey (not the book) and in has come a spectrum of colour and design. ‘Nun’ of your made to measure then,  but you can always have someone ‘altar’ it? Senior Anglican figures are hoping to show that the church is modernising and can attract younger audiences to it. Seven clergy from churches in the North West will be taking to the 'Righteous Runway' to exhibit the designs. Called ‘Clergy On The Catwalk’ it features designers Juliet Hemingray, Hayes and Finch, Cross Designs and J&M Sewing. The CRE event is dubbed 'The Ideal Church Show' because it features ecclesiastical suppliers who provide everything from church lighting to parish computer systems and even coffins. The two day show is expected to attract around 3,000 visitors. The ‘host’ has made a significant in-‘vestment’ and I'm sure they’d like to make a ‘prophet’ so lets hope it’s ‘souled’ out. As for the bad puns don't blame me , blame ‘hymn’. 

Who is in the Spooky Gallery today? Pop over and leave a comment at Mollie & Alfie's to be included.
