The Bishop of Gloucester, the Right Reverend Rachel Treweek is our Guest Editor and takes the theme of transformation as her inspiration.

We talk to Angela France about her work with the charity Infobuzz delivering art and creative writing projects in Eastwood Park HMP.

Bishop Rachel explains how she's been inspired by Jean Vanier who's set up L'Arche communities around the world. Two hundred people in the UK with learning disabilities are cared by in communities supported by assistants, some who live in houses with core members. Catherine Carr visits the L'Arche community in Preston.

Polly Meynell talks about designing and making Bishop Rachel's cope and mitre. Diana Short, whose business Lick the Spoon produces handmade chocolate, brings a celebration block of chocolate.
