Whatever it was that Stephanie ‘Steph’ Nadarajah brought to the masses, the Word quickly spread.
In six months since taking up her new ministry, the 29 year-old former NHS manager has seen Sunday congregations double in size from an average 75 to a respectable 150 plus.
Leave it to the Daily Mail to go with this cheeky caption to Nadarajah's photograph:

Certainly Naradjah is more than a pretty face:
Steph is a far more modern thinker – she has a Facebook page, keeps fit by running, enjoys fine wine and loves shopping. And yes, she is only too aware of what TV’s Vicar of Dibley had done for women in the church. ‘It’s mentioned all the time,’ she said.
‘It did a lot for women’s ministry in making it acceptable for women to be ordained. But let’s make it more ordinary.’
Parishioner Andrew Spencer, 52, welcomed her arrival: ‘It’s great to see an attractive young lady at the church,’ he said. ‘She’s not just a pretty face though – she’s intelligent and a great listener.’
