Sunday worship from Bangor Cathedral will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 this Sunday at 8.10am, 22 July 2018.

The service will examine the importance of Mary Magdalene in the gospel accounts which is marked by their writers’ frequent references to her, and although the Bible offers little biographical detail, the hints at a personal story of dramatic transformation continue to fascinate and inspire. On her feast day, a live service from Bangor Cathedral both celebrates her role in Christ’s story and explores the inspiration she offers us today.

The choir of Bangor Cathedral, directed by Paul Booth, leads worship with music including Calon Lan (Pure Heart), the best known of the hymns by Welsh bard Daniel James (Gwyrosydd), and the anthem The Doctrine of Wisdom by William Mathias; as well as Come Down O Love Divine (Down Ampney) and We Have A Gospel To Proclaim (Fulda).

The service is led by the Dean of Bangor, the Very Rev’d Kathy Jones and the preacher is the Rt Rev’d Andy John, Bishop of Bangor.
