Parish & Ward Church of St. Botolph without Bishopsgate

St Botolph Stars on Prime Time TV!

St Botolph's featured in a documentary last night on BBC1 when distinguished war reporter Kate Adie examined the impact of women's work on the Home Front during the First World War. One of the pioneering women featured was Dr Maude Royden, wife of our former Rector Hudson Shaw and a distinguished preacher in her own right, who was the first woman to preach from a Church of England pulpit, and Miss Adie was seen reading from a Bible which Revd Shaw and Dr Royden might well have used.
