Victorian church changes its name from St Michael’s to ‘St Mike’s’ in an attempt to be more trendy to attract younger generations



A Victorian church known as St Michael's has changed its name to 'St Mike's' in a bid to be more trendy to attract younger people.



Reverend Sarah Yetman explained the reason for the re-branding, saying that she wants the 148-year-old church to be 'attractive and engaging for younger generations'.



She added: 'We're bringing new life into the old building and planting a new congregation into the church.



'Our vision at St Mike's is that the church can be a beacon of light and hope within the local community. We aim to reach more young people and that we can see them come to know Jesus in their own way.'



However, speaking to The Sun, one person questioned the decision.Latest Post
