At 8.00am each Sunday, the BBC's network of 39 local radio stations come together for an act of worship.

On Sunday 13th June, the service comes from Salisbury Cathedral.

Recorded in the Chapter House, just yards from the Cathedral’s copy of Magna Carta sealed on 15th June 1215, the service explores the Christian’s duty to pray for our leaders.

Led by Canon Anna Macham, the Cathedral’s Precentor, the Bishop of Salisbury gives the Address.

Salisbury’s former Member of Parliament for 27 years, Robert Key reads from the Bible on talks about the importance of praying for politicians, Cathedral Archivist and Librarian Emily Naish talks about Magna Carta, and the prayers are led by young people from schools in the shadow of the Cathedral.

The service is broadcast across BBC local radio, including BBC Radio Solent and BBC Radio Wiltshire, at 8.00am on Sunday 13th June and will then be available on BBC Sounds.

You can read Bishop Nicholas's sermon here from Sunday morning onwards.
