Aled Jones and Songs of Praise

Aled Jones joins the archbishop of York designate Stephen Cottrell for Christian hope and reflection, and recalls the stories of inspiring guests on the programme.

In a special episode, Aled Jones speaks to the archbishop of York designate, the Right Rev Stephen Cottrell, about the Christian hope that can still be found despite the troubled times we’re currently in. The archbishop designate shares how Bible stories, where people placed their hope in Jesus, still give him inspiration and comfort today. Aled also recalls recent episodes when he met those whose faith saw them through especially challenging times – a mother who survived the Grenfell Tower tragedy and Harry Billinge, the Second World War veteran who survived the D-Day landings in 1940 aged just 18. Hymns on a theme of hope and reassurance come from around the UK, and archbishop designate Stephen Cottrell concludes the programme with a special prayer.
