Versace model turned vicar says he will get Janners worshipping in church again

From Plymouth UK-

"In churches I think we've put up a bit of a wall," says Vicar Olly Ryder, who has just moved from London to Plymouth.

"I think the majority of people in the country are not ungodly, but atheism gets a lot of air time.

"A lot of people have the sense of the divine, or 'the other', but have possibly found it hard to access that."

Olly, aged 41, was asked to come to Plymouth to set up what has been dubbed a 'Resource Church' by the Church of England.

The new church is being launched a St Matthias on North Hill, in the heart of the growing student community.

Olly, who was once a model for Versace, wants to offer a church for the "every man and woman".
