Songs of Praise
The Rev Kate Bottley is on Crosby Beach celebrating the 15th anniversary of the iron men sculptures created by artist Antony Gormley. Kate speaks to local Christians who have been inspired by the statues to create their own artworks, including paintings, photography and performance.
James Lusted meets one of the founding members of Crossbeats, a Liverpool-based band credited with helping to bring Contemporary Christian Music to the UK back in the 1960s. Kate travels just along the coast to Formby, hoping to see the rare red squirrel. She visits the prayer centre there, right in the heart of the National Trust conservation area.
