Pastor Allen Parker, the leader of White Tail Chapel in the town of Southampton, said he came to the decision to allow naked worship after concluding the clothing requirements of other churches were overly 'pretentious', and decided his own flock should be free to forgo such materialism if they desire.

'If God made us that way, how can that be wrong?' he added.

'There’s not a Nude Worship that you have to be better than one another, physically. We’re humans, we have scars, we have what we have. It’s learning to love and accept that,' Mr Parker says.
