All ground is holy ground

As the BBC establishes a new broadcasting centre at MediaCityUK in Salford Quays, Sunday Worship swaps its traditional church setting for one of the BBC's new studios, for a service with the local community exploring the Christian belief that God is present everywhere, including in our places of work and play.

The BBC Philharmonic and Manchester Chamber Choir, conducted by Paul Brough, lead a congregation gathered from the city of Salford, from the BBC and of MediaCityUK representatives. The music will include the hymns Dear Lord and Father of Mankind, Angel-voices ever singing and Bach's beautiful anthem: Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring.

The preacher is the Bishop of Bolton, The Rt Revd Chris Edmondson, who has been closely involved in the development of MediaCityUK and its links to the wider community. The service is led by the Chaplain to MediaCityUK, The Revd Hayley Matthews. Producer: Simon Vivian.
