Songs of Praise from Launde Abbey

One of the BBC’s Songs of Praise programmes which was filmed at Launde Abbey during Bishop Martyn’s School of Prayer was shown on Sunday, June 24th.

The show was themed around prayer and presented from Launde Abbey by TV personality and priest Kate Bottley. Along with the usual mix of songs, hymns and short testimonies, Revd Kate explored how more and more Christians are using apps and digital technology to aid their times of prayer.
