'Chris is risen', church sign mistakenly reads

Remember the Bible story about the time Chris spent three days in a tomb, before emerging alive?

A church in the UK ordered some signs ahead of Easter, presumably meant to read 'Christ is risen'. But they almost got a completely different message - 'Chris is risen'.

Ned Lunn of Acomb Parish Church in York told the BBC the printers spotted the mistake just before sending them out.

But they might have been useful after all.

"The pastor at the Baptist Church is actually called Chris and he's got to get up for a sunrise service at 6:30am on Easter Sunday," Mr Lunn said.

"His predecessor didn't manage to get up for the service last year."
