Rock band U2's music is soon to become part of an English church's service in an effort to draw more people.
The first service will have songs like "Mysterious Ways" and "When Love comes to Town" which will replace hymns. The songs will feature Bono's lyrics accompanied by images of poverty and drought, reported contactmusic.com.
Bishop Timothy Ellis said: "Bono and Bob Geldof are very human, but they have demonstrated that they believe there is sanctity to life that has to be protected. If that makes them saints, then I would go along with that.
"We are hoping the service will be a fresh way to look at worship, less formal, and less rigid. This is not designed to replace traditional services but to enhance the worship provision of the Church."
