A church in east London has installed a board outside with lyrics of the American rapper Kanye West. Rev Barry Hobson of St Andrew's church in Hornchurch started the controversial method as a way of enticing more people to get involved in the church and Christianity.

Rev Hobson has gained the help from a local volunteer who has had to write more than 285 quotes on the board using 'inspiration from the internet'.
