BBC Radio 4’s Sunday Worship, 8.10am – Speaking into troubled times. The Revd Lucy Winkett, Rector of St James’ Piccadilly, and composer Bob Chilcott explore the power of music to speak into troubled times.

BBC 1’s Songs of Praise is being broadcast on Sunday at 1.15pm. Celebrating Florence Nightingale and the NHS.

In the year of Florence Nightingale’s bicentenary and to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the NHS, Katherine Jenkins is in central London to pay tribute to all carers on the frontline.

Outside St Thomas’ Hospital, where they celebrate pioneers like Florence Nightingale and her contemporary Mary Seacole, Katherine meets Christian nurses who have been caring for people with Covid-19 throughout the pandemic. She also meets the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, who has been volunteering as a chaplain at St Thomas’ during lockdown. He speaks about the role of Christian faith at such a time of loss and uncertainty, and he reflects on the care NHS staff have given to patients, which he has witnessed first-hand.
