Belper - Our Lady of Perpetual Succour

A stone-built church of the early 2oth century, re-using materials for former  service  buildings  attached  to  Gibfield  House.  The  church  is almost chapel-like in its external simplicity and is an uncharacteristically  low-key  design  by  J.  Sydney Brocklesby.  It makes   a   positive   contribution   to   the   Belper   Conservation   Area, although the concrete tile roof is regrettable.

Luke In Lent - Luke 4: 14-44

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 4: 14-44. In the previous passage Jesus proclaimed the kingdom in words here it is proclaimed through his actions. As often in Luke there is a parallel between the synagogue in Nazareth and Capernaum. Here they receive Jesus’s word and actions and ecognize that his teaching has authority.

Luke In Lent - Luke 5: 1-26

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 5: 1-26. Luke’s storytelling can have vivid touches: the boat pushed away from the shore, the removal of a roof. As vivid is Jesus’ calling of Simon Peter: the invitation to put out into the deep, the catch of fish. Peter follows because of what he has seen and heard; he is the first to recognise him as ‘Lord’.

Today's podcast for 'Reading Luke in Lent' looks at Luke, Chapter 5: 27-39. This is the first of the meals or banquets in Luke’s Gospel. Each meal is a foretaste of the Last Supper.
