In the days following the Sunday Worship, each theme was further explored in The Daily Service link to external website from Monday to Thursday at 0945 on BBC Radio 4 (198 Long Wave and Digital). We included the daily themes and readings below so that they could be followed through Lent. (The Act of Worship at the same time on Fridays usually reflects current events, so it has not been included in this series.)
