In preparation for the beatification of Cardinal Newman taking place later at Cofton Park in Birmingham, thousands are already gathered on the grassy slopes near Newman's oratory church, to celebrate the life of one of the greatest English theologians of the 19th Century and prepare for the forthcoming Papal Mass. The service is led by Mike Stanley and Jo Boyce who are joined by school choirs from Coventry and Birmingham. Our worship is introduced by Bernadette Kearney. Producer: Philip Billson.
