Lily Allen song for Bible groups

Churchgoers could be soon be listening to a Lily Allen song before they take part in a Bible study course.

The song in question is 'The Fear' but don't worry it's the radio version that is being suggested, without the expletives.

The Bishop of Sheffield, Dr Steven Croft, has compiled a new five-week course called Exploring God's Mercy and it encourages Christians to play popular songs or DVD clips at the start of each session.

Dr Croft said the song which has the opening lyrics "I want to be rich and I want lots of money" captured a "certain spirit" of contemporary culture.

"It is not to play in public worship, it is suggested for groups to listen to if they want, there is a pretty clear instruction in the book to group leaders to check out the lyrics first and to make sure that they use the version that is played on the radio," Bishop Croft said.

Other additional material recommended for the course includes clips from Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and the movie 2012.
