Churches Together in Britain and Ireland enters into partnership with BBC Radio for Lent

Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, BBC Radio 4 and BBC Local radio are pleased to announce a Lent partnership for 2008 - Pathways of Prayer

Lent is an important time of preparation for Christians. The death and resurrection of Christ, celebrated during Holy Week and Easter, is the culmination of Christian faith.

Reflecting the season, BBC Radio 4's Sunday Worship (0810-0850) and Daily Service (0945-1000 BBC R4 LW) will take up themes of Pathways of Prayer with a study guide and complementary materials on both the CTBI and BBC websites. BBC Local Radio stations will be offering parallel features about prayer that will be tied into local initiatives and events.

Recent research from Tearfund suggests that around twenty million people pray in the UK. Pathways of Prayer aims to provide opportunities for anyone to explore Christian spirituality and to deepen his or her prayer life. It will provide a rich and useful resource to individuals and groups.

Resource materials for individuals and groups will be downloadable from the CTBI and BBC websites ( - which will offer pointers to enable further exploration of the theme for each week. It is hoped that church and other groups will download these and use them during Lent. The materials will be accessible for anyone who is interested in spirituality and prayer.

Each week the Radio 4 Sunday Worship preacher will focus on a particular ‘Pathway of Prayer'. These will be:
