The Rev Kate Bottley goes on a very personal journey across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire to share the story of her Christian faith through the people, places and music that have shaped and inspired her.\n \nKate begins by returning for the first time to the church in Sheffield where she was baptised as a baby. She shares her firm belief that God had his hand on her life from that point on, even though faith was not part of her childhood and it would be years before she set foot in a church again. She then meets the school friend who first invited her to a church youth club, and together they recall the day a teenage Kate became a Christian and decided to share her excitement with the whole school!\n \nBack at her old university in Leeds, Kate gets her boots on to meet up with her old rugby teammates and reflects on the friendships forged on the pitch and in the chapel. She then travels to the beautiful Southwell Minster in Nottinghamshire. It was here Kate was ordained as a priest 11 years ago, and she reflects on her calling to the priesthood and discovers what she was really like a young curate when she meets up with the priest in charge of her first parish.\n \nAnd we discover how a surprise dance routine at a wedding where Kate was officiating turned into a viral video and changed Kate’s life completely. It was the moment that began the newest chapter in Kate’s faith journey, in the world of television and radio. As we go behind the scenes at BBC Radio 2, Kate reflects on the experiences of the last few years, hearing other people’s faith stories and striving to share the love of God over the airwaves. \n\nWith favourite hymns and songs all chosen by Kate for the special meaning they hold for her family and her ministry. \n\nAt the Name of Jesus – St Cuthbert’s Carlisle\nChrist, Be Our Light – St Patrick’s Church, Dungannon\nSiyahamba – Victoria Halls, Bolton\nIt Is Well With My Soul – Albert Hall, Nottingham\nBe Thou My Vision – John Barrowman\nMy Lighthouse – Rend Collective\nThine Be the Glory – Glasgow Cathedral\n\nFilmed within government guidelines.
