A CHURCH has been forced to apologise after a Page Three-style picture was shown during a projector presentation to adults at an evening class.
St Mark’s Church in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, was hosting a Power Point presentation in a meeting room by the Reverend Daniel Watts to 50 adult members on Sunday evening. (February 24) During the Power Point presentation, an image of a naked woman flashed up on the screen.
The church, where Rev Watts is an associate minister for young people, said no children were present and few people had noticed the error.
A statement from the church read: “A separate teaching section was being held for about 50 adult members of the 5pm service at St Mark’s church last Sunday in a meeting room and a Power Point presentation was shown.
“It appears that a technical glitch accidentally caused an inappropriate image from the internet to appear momentarily on the screen, of a Page Three type.
“This was clearly not intended but very few people seem to be have been aware of it.
“No-one made any comment or complaint at the time or after the service, but if anyone was offended we of course would like to apologise.”
A concerned member of the meeting, who wished to remain anonymous, said: “The vicar was doing an overhead projection, when one of the icons showed a pornographic picture.
“It appeared to show a naked lady. A lot of people noticed it and were quite shocked.
“There was a bit of panic, he was clearly trying to get it down.
“It was just so inappropriate, there were young children about.”
