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'.

The church installed the board with the lyrics over two years ago. Credit: PA
