Turn your radio on

Those of you who are in range of the BBC’s transmitters can hear a service from St Mary’s tomorrow.

We are doing the 0810 Morning Worship slot on Radio 4. 38 glorious minutes of Sunday morning prime-time.

Those of you furth of these shores can hear all of this on the BBC’s listen again page soon after the broadcast.

Off to polish up the sermon.


  1. Those outwith the range of BBC tranmitters, but with access to the Internet, can always pick listen to Kelvin’s dulcet tones via the bbc website.

  2. …and selecting the listening live option. Just remember the time difference.

    Brilliant!! I’ll be there! (listening that is)

  4. We have our radios on fathoming out how close Glasgow Airport came to going up completely in smoke – the carnage of Iraq almost brought to our own city. Never has the timing of a service been so close to current events. Thoughts and prayers with you as you prepare in the media spotlight.

  5. Andrew says

    Thank you, Kelvin – and thanks to everyone else – for once on Sunday Worship it sounded as if real people were praying with us listeners.
    The Macmillan piece was quite wonderful and perfectly complemented your thoughts. Space and quiet and calm and enough Biblical disturbance to stop us being complacent and stop us also responding to the newspapers headlines that we really ought not to go outside without a gas mask and binoculars.
    A space to make Radio 4 seem sane. Thank you.
    And I never saw a kingfisher in the Kelvin in my days in Q Margaret Drive – just the odd used sofa thrown over the bridge. Glasgow really is transformed.

  6. What a day we had on Sunday at the cathedral- three services in a space of 12 hours! Highlight of the early morning Radio 4 broadcast service for me had to be the choir singing James MacMillan’s A New Song with Oliver Rundell at the organ. Spine-tingling – well my spine tingled.

    Also memorable was the way in which the Provost managed to lift our spirits after the dreadful events the previous day at Glasgow Airport. I doubt if it could have done better – restrained, thoughtful, calming and uplifting.

    At Evensong the choir and Oliver continued to impress at their “end of term” appearance – the singing of the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis was absolutely beautiful.

    Footnote: Thank you to all the helpers who provided the orange juice, coffee, tea and croissants for our early morning breakfast, all done quietly, efficiently and without any fuss.
