Raising awareness of Anna Chaplaincy on BBC TV

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

We’re confident more than a million people have heard about Anna Chaplaincy this week as they tuned into Songs of Praise on BBC One. The popular long-running series regularly averages more than a million viewers every week and yesterday the focus was on ‘The Power of the Bible’.

Presented by Revd Canon Kate Bottley, this week’s edition celebrated the centenary of BRF, its Bible reading notes and ministries among all ages.

There were sequences with Hampshire Anna Chaplain Revd Rachel Sturt, a visit to a Messy Church in south London and BRF chief executive Richard Fisher was interviewed. He told viewers the story of how the charity started, growing not only into a publisher of Bible reading notes sent around the world (alongside books and other resources), but also became a developer of many grassroots Christian initiatives, including Anna Chaplaincy.

If you missed it yesterday afternoon, don’t forget you can catch up on BBC iPlayer at any time in the next month.
