Church mistakenly put up a sign reading ‘Chris is risen’ for Easter

The pastor at the Baptist Church is actually called Chris and he is expected to ‘risen’ on Sunday.

Acomb Parish Church, in Yorkshire, was presented with signs reading ‘Chris is risen’ instead of the correct ‘Christ is risen’ following a mix up at the printers.

The church had ordered four banners saying 'Christ is Risen' but the 'T' was missed off the finished article.

It wasn't until an eagle-eyed customer of Mark Prousdale's signage company spotted the error, that anybody had realised the typo.

Assistant Curate Ned Lunn however, said the error was discovered before the signs were delivered.

"I'm so glad the customer spotted the mistake. It'll save a bit of embarrassment and a lot of confusion.

"I had to check the four banners when I distributed them though, just to make sure”

Coincidentally, the pastor at the Baptist Church is actually called Chris and he is expected to ‘risen’ on Sunday.

“He's got to get up for a sunrise service at 6.30am on Easter Sunday.

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