There will be a little less congregation and a little more action for this former vicar from now on following his decision to quit the church to become an Elvis impersonator.
Pew suede shoes: Former vicar Andy Kelso is now an Elvis impersonator.
Reverend Andy Kelso made the shock decision after he received a message from God to spread the word of the King while he was out walking his dogs.
The 64-year-old has now swapped the Church of England for that of Elvis after setting up the Elvis Gospel Tribute Act.
'One day I was out walking the dogs in between church services and I felt God say to me very strongly "take Elvis to the church", revealed Elvis Prayersley.
'It was a shock but after one concert there was a lot of interest from churches who wanted to connect with their communities and my tribute act seems to connect.
'When I play, the venues are packed out and I've not looked back since.'
There was no crying in the chapel following his shock decision to ditch his white collar in favour of a white jumpsuit among his parishioners in Redditch, Worcestershire, as a few of them are now fans of his Elvis tribute.
He added: 'Let's just say God has a sense of humour.
'I spent 25 years doing the one thing I vowed I never would - being a vicar.
'Now people who wouldn't normally come to church are coming to a great evening out with some food for thought.'
