A Quick Catch Up - Part 2

07 February 2018

One hundred years since British women over the age of 30 first got the vote, Rev Kate Bottley celebrates pioneering Christian women. She visits Mansfield College in Oxford to learn about Constance Coltman, the first woman to be ordained in a UK denomination over a century ago. She speaks to people who knew her, including Jenny Mills who is the minister of the church Constance served and now serves herself.

Josie d'Arby gains exclusive access to an exquisite 400-year-old church altar cloth which experts say is from a skirt actually worn by Queen Elizabeth I. Josie also meets Ruth Awogbade, who launched her own Christian fashion magazine. And all this week's music, from across the UK, is inspired or written by women.

Music:
Blessed Assurance - LSO St Lukes, London
In Heavenly Love Abiding - St German's Church, Cardiff
What a Beautiful Name - St Catherine's Pontypridd
Before the Throne - Enniskillen
Take My Life and Let it Be - Romsey Abbey
He Will Hold Me Fast from Belfast - Kristyn Getty
Tell Out My Soul - St John the Baptist, Tideswell.
