The first British Sign Language service at St Alban's Church in Dartford took place on Easter Sunday.

Twelve Deaf people came to celebrate Easter, with the entire worship, including the sermon, in British Sign Language.

The Rev Esther Bevan, Curate at St Edmund's & St Alban's, Dartford, who led the service, is a British Sign Language Interpreter. She says they are now exploring how they can make this a regular feature in their churches.

You can view Esther's sermon below, which was about a picture called “An Idle Tale” by Michael Cook.
