This week, I'm in West Sussex for a fusion of festival and faith.

0:00:020:00:05

The bands are warming up,

0:00:050:00:07

everyone's preparing for the crowds that are going to descend

0:00:070:00:10

on this area very shortly because it is

0:00:100:00:13

the biggest Christian gathering in Europe.

0:00:130:00:15

This is the Big Church Day Out.

0:00:150:00:17

I'm going to be backstage, onstage and in amongst the crowd here,

0:00:210:00:25

to capture the atmosphere of this giant family get-together

0:00:250:00:28

of Christians from across the UK.

0:00:280:00:31

I'm also going to be enjoying the music

0:00:310:00:34

and company of some of the biggest names in global Christian music.

0:00:340:00:38

And from festival to festive, later in the programme,

0:00:400:00:43

I'll be joining our art experts to decide the ten winners

0:00:430:00:46

of our Christmas card competition in aid of BBC Children In Need.

0:00:460:00:51

-I like that!

-Yes, I like that.

-Yeah, I like that!

0:00:510:00:54

And to mark the Queen's official 90th birthday,

0:00:560:00:59

Pam celebrates with 90 of Her Majesty's peers in Gloucestershire.

0:00:590:01:03

Well, as the first performers here prepare to take to the stage,

0:01:120:01:15

it's time for our opening hymn.

0:01:150:01:17

And just to prove that festivals are nothing new,

0:01:170:01:20

this iconic tune was commissioned for a Baptist festival

0:01:200:01:23

of song in South Wales over a century ago.

0:01:230:01:26

And legend has it that its composer, John Hughes,

0:01:260:01:29

wrote the score using chalk and a tarpaulin.

0:01:290:01:33

Big Church Day Out is in its eighth year.

0:04:340:04:37

It's the brainchild of Tim Jupp from the '90s band Delirious.

0:04:370:04:42

It's overwhelming every year to see so many people turn up.

0:04:430:04:46

I think people just love being together.

0:04:460:04:48

We often hear a story about the church being in decline

0:04:480:04:51

and it feels like sometimes it's almost on its last legs.

0:04:510:04:55

And I think, you know, there is a different story to tell

0:04:550:04:58

because the church is very much alive.

0:04:580:05:02

I usually find it really encouraging to see this many people

0:05:020:05:05

in one place, all here for the same purpose,

0:05:050:05:07

and that's to worship our Lord.

0:05:070:05:09

There's just so many types of different people here.

0:05:120:05:15

We're all getting on the same page.

0:05:150:05:17

Different ages, you know, different people, groups,

0:05:170:05:19

different streams of the church, different expressions of the church,

0:05:190:05:22

-but we're all gathering in this one place in the thousands...

-Uh-huh.

0:05:220:05:26

..and we're becoming a big choir together. I love it.

0:05:260:05:28

DRUMS PLAY UPBEAT RHYTHM

0:05:280:05:34

I've met someone with an even better laugh than me.

0:05:340:05:36

HE LAUGHS It's Andy!

0:05:360:05:39

Andy, what is it you're doing here?

0:05:390:05:40

Well, essentially, we are worshipping here.

0:05:400:05:43

That's the main thing we're doing.

0:05:430:05:45

You're praying, you're in the midst of people.

0:05:450:05:48

-The drums are like a prayer and the flags are a declaration.

-Mm-hm.

0:05:480:05:53

A declaration of God's goodness, so...

0:05:530:05:56

-It's not a bad way to spend your day, is it?

-It's fantastic!

0:05:560:05:59

This stunning tree has been turned into a prayer tree this weekend.

0:06:040:06:09

It's always a lovely moment, isn't it, to just pause and reflect

0:06:090:06:13

on things in and amongst all the fun that's going on here?

0:06:130:06:17

I think it's just amazing to see what God's up to in the church

0:06:170:06:21

today and, I think, to be part of that is always a humbling thing.

0:06:210:06:26

It's a privilege to be in the mix of what's going on.

0:06:260:06:30

And so, we love the music, we love the bands,

0:06:310:06:33

but more than anything, we love the worship that goes on here.

0:06:330:06:37

0:09:060:09:11

That was American singer-songwriter, Phil Wickham,

0:09:130:09:16

performing on the festival Main Stage.

0:09:160:09:18

Big Church Day Out has something for everyone - young, not so young,

0:09:190:09:23

music lovers and families - they are all here.

0:09:230:09:27

But recently, Pam was invited to a church celebration

0:09:270:09:30

in Gloucestershire that had a rather more exclusive guest list.

0:09:300:09:34

BAND PLAYS HAPPY BIRTHDAY

0:09:380:09:41

This weekend marks the culmination of three months of celebrating

0:09:420:09:45

the 90th birthday of the Queen, a woman who so perfectly represents

0:09:450:09:50

her remarkable generation,

0:09:500:09:52

who have seen so much change and challenge over their long lives.

0:09:520:09:56

So, I've come here to join the congregation of St Mary's Church

0:09:560:10:00

in Thornbury

0:10:000:10:02

as they pay tribute, not just to the achievements of the Queen,

0:10:020:10:04

but to 90 of their own Gloucestershire nonagenarians

0:10:040:10:09

during nine decades of life.

0:10:090:10:11

# Long to reign over us

0:10:110:10:17

# God save the Queen. #

0:10:170:10:21

The service was the idea of Dame Janet Trotter,

0:10:220:10:25

the Lord-Lieutenant of Gloucestershire,

0:10:250:10:27

the Queen's personal representative in the county.

0:10:270:10:30

Well, my aims were very much to involve the local community,

0:10:300:10:35

so we've gone out across South Gloucestershire and invited people

0:10:350:10:38

from every parish, and of course, 90 90-year-olds!

0:10:380:10:42

And I think this year, when the Queen is 90, we can put

0:10:420:10:46

a particular spotlight on them and recognise all that they have done.

0:10:460:10:51

You know, they are a feisty generation.

0:10:510:10:53

Every time I see them, I think, "Crumbs!"

0:10:530:10:55

You know, they are just fantastic.

0:10:550:10:57

The light and peace of Jesus Christ be with you...

0:10:570:11:02

The service was devised by Thornbury Parish Church's vicar,

0:11:020:11:05

the Rev Dr Jan van de Lely.

0:11:050:11:07

Well, the service is about community service

0:11:070:11:10

because that's so important in Christianity.

0:11:100:11:14

Jesus lived a life of service and he died for us

0:11:140:11:18

and, in fact, one of the readings is about how

0:11:180:11:20

he washed his disciples' feet the night before he died,

0:11:200:11:23

and he was demonstrating he was there to serve them,

0:11:230:11:26

and that was his example to us.

0:11:260:11:28

So if I, your Lord and teacher, have washed your feet,

0:11:280:11:34

you also ought to wash one another's feet.

0:11:340:11:39

That picture of servant leadership is what the Queen really stands for.

0:11:390:11:43

She has lived that out throughout her years as our monarch.

0:11:430:11:47

THEY SING

0:11:470:11:50

In today's congregation, we've got the whole span of ages,

0:11:550:11:58

from the 90-year-olds right down to the youngest children,

0:11:580:12:03

and the children are really important in the service

0:12:030:12:06

because we want them to see those older people

0:12:060:12:10

and to recognise what they've achieved

0:12:100:12:12

and to learn to respect them and, of course,

0:12:120:12:15

to follow in their fantastic example of living lives of service as well.

0:12:150:12:20

Tell me about the pebbles.

0:12:200:12:22

So, the pebbles are a symbolic act,

0:12:220:12:26

so that everybody in the church, whatever age,

0:12:260:12:30

will contribute a pebble, and that pebble will represent

0:12:300:12:34

their contribution to the health of the community.

0:12:340:12:38

I asked a few of the 90-year-olds

0:12:400:12:42

what they thought of the Queen and the service today.

0:12:420:12:45

I think she's wonderful.

0:12:450:12:47

I think she's a tremendous example to all of us.

0:12:470:12:50

If we could only be like her, it would be wonderful.

0:12:500:12:52

I don't know how she does it.

0:12:520:12:54

To be... To be invited, as I am,

0:12:540:12:58

it's an honour, really.

0:12:580:13:00

I liked it.

0:13:000:13:01

The seats are a bit hard!

0:13:010:13:03

I should bring a cushion next time.

0:13:050:13:08

So, throughout long years of war and peace,

0:13:080:13:11

of hardship and prosperity, the Queen's generation have

0:13:110:13:15

worked with faith and friendship to bring up their families

0:13:150:13:18

and build communities, and it's those years

0:13:180:13:21

we remember now in a hymn from the prolific modern-day writer,

0:13:210:13:24

Timothy Dudley-Smith,

0:13:240:13:26

who, later this year, will be celebrating his own 90th birthday.

0:13:260:13:30

Music is often a large part of Christian worship

0:16:110:16:14

and it's no different here at the Big Church Day Out.

0:16:140:16:17

But, as well as being a lot of fun,

0:16:170:16:19

it does have that special power to lift the spirit,

0:16:190:16:22

comfort us in times of need and, of course, help us to feel connected.

0:16:220:16:27

At our church, we sing some of the hefty hymns - we love that

0:16:290:16:33

at our church - but I really love the modern praise as well.

0:16:330:16:36

You can see just, sort of, Jesus breaking into people's hearts,

0:16:360:16:39

people getting touched, you know, crying,

0:16:390:16:41

and it's just lovely. It's just wonderful to be here.

0:16:410:16:44

I think, when you go to a music festival,

0:16:440:16:46

you can almost worship the band, you can worship the artist,

0:16:460:16:49

whereas here, you're worshipping God.

0:16:490:16:52

For Donna Francis, Big Church Day Out's fusion of faith

0:16:550:16:58

and music has had a big impact.

0:16:580:17:00

I have a very rare condition, so I have a lot of pain,

0:17:010:17:04

I've had to have a lot of operations,

0:17:040:17:06

but I think that having faith in God has given me someone to go to,

0:17:060:17:10

someone to pray to and I know that God's always there,

0:17:100:17:14

he's always right beside me and I'm never alone.

0:17:140:17:16

There is a song by Matt Redman and this is a song very special

0:17:160:17:20

to my heart because I was about 15,

0:17:200:17:23

and when that music was played I really felt touched by God,

0:17:230:17:28

and I believe that I received some healing from God -

0:17:280:17:31

an overwhelming sense of peace that you just can't explain,

0:17:310:17:35

and it has to be God, it can't be anything else.

0:17:350:17:38

# When the music fades

0:17:380:17:42

# And all is stripped away

0:17:420:17:45

# And I simply come

0:17:450:17:48

# Longing just to bring

0:17:520:17:55

# Something that's of worth

0:17:550:17:58

# That will bless your heart, my God

0:17:580:18:03

# And I'll bring you more than a song

0:18:050:18:08

# For a song in itself

0:18:080:18:11

# Is not what you have required

0:18:110:18:15

# You search much deeper within

0:18:180:18:21

# Through the way things appear

0:18:210:18:24

# You're looking into my heart

0:18:240:18:28

# I'm coming back to the heart of worship

0:18:310:18:37

# And it's all about you

0:18:370:18:40

# It's all about you, Jesus

0:18:400:18:44

# I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it

0:18:440:18:50

# When it's all about you

0:18:500:18:54

# It's all about you, Jesus

0:18:540:18:58

# I'm coming back to the heart of worship

0:18:580:19:03

# And it's all about you

0:19:030:19:06

# It's all about you

0:19:060:19:08

# It's all about you, Jesus

0:19:080:19:11

# I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it

0:19:110:19:17

# When it's all about you

0:19:170:19:20

# It's all about you, Jesus. #

0:19:200:19:25

I feel like I need to get in the mood for this next feature.

0:19:300:19:34

Cue the snow machine!

0:19:340:19:36

We have been inundated with your designs for

0:19:370:19:39

our Christmas card competition in aid of BBC Children In Need,

0:19:390:19:42

so thank you so much if you entered.

0:19:420:19:45

Time now to reveal the ten designs that will make up

0:19:450:19:50

our Songs Of Praise Christmas card pack -

0:19:500:19:53

hitting the shelves nationwide from September.

0:19:530:19:56

Over the last few weeks, Team Songs Of Praise,

0:19:590:20:02

under the watchful eye of Pudsey, has been shortlisting

0:20:020:20:05

your wonderfully varied Christmas card designs, ready for the judges.

0:20:050:20:10

Joining me to cast an expert eye over the entries are

0:20:200:20:24

BBC arts editor Will Gompertz,

0:20:240:20:26

and actress and accomplished water-colourist Una Stubbs.

0:20:260:20:29

I'm hoping to see today cards obviously that I like

0:20:290:20:33

and I can see some ones that really, really appeal.

0:20:330:20:37

Super simple and wow!

0:20:370:20:40

'I just like something which is,

0:20:400:20:42

' "Oh, my goodness, I wasn't expecting that!" '

0:20:420:20:44

Maybe something which is comic, or it could be serious,

0:20:440:20:47

but definitely unusual.

0:20:470:20:50

This is pretty good, isn't it?

0:20:530:20:55

-Josie, don't you think?

-Yeah, I do, I love that one.

0:20:550:20:58

To me, Christmas cards are one of the best things about Christmas.

0:20:580:21:03

You get a card from someone

0:21:030:21:05

you haven't spoken to for a year - "Aww! Aww!"

0:21:050:21:08

SHE CHUCKLES

0:21:080:21:09

-I really like this arrangement.

-Oh!

0:21:090:21:11

"And the greatest of these is love" -

0:21:110:21:13

obviously a very Christmassy sentiment.

0:21:130:21:15

And you've got the boxes and the gold.

0:21:150:21:17

But, actually, I really like the typography.

0:21:170:21:19

Yeah, this is one of my favourites.

0:21:190:21:20

I probably shouldn't say just yet, but, yeah,

0:21:200:21:23

I like the typography as well.

0:21:230:21:24

-I like that.

-Yes, I like that.

-I like that.

0:21:240:21:27

Because music is such a beautiful thing,

0:21:270:21:29

and certainly very much part of Christmas,

0:21:290:21:31

-and that's just a very elegant representation.

-It is.

0:21:310:21:34

-Good use of colour.

-Yes.

-And, again, nice arrangement.

0:21:370:21:41

I think this artist has done Christmas cards before.

0:21:410:21:44

-Very professional.

-Yeah.

0:21:440:21:46

Well, I think we are spoilt for choice, aren't we, really?

0:21:480:21:51

Absolutely.

0:21:510:21:52

But we do have to decide, so what I've got for you is ten pegs

0:21:520:21:56

-with love hearts on them, appropriately, each...

-Oh!

0:21:560:21:59

..and now it's time for you to just wander around in your own time

0:21:590:22:02

-and put these pegs on the ten that you're most fond of.

-OK.

0:22:020:22:06

You have to capture the spirit of Christmas in this image

0:22:100:22:14

and to communicate that sentiment in a single image is quite tricky.

0:22:140:22:19

I'm looking for cards that catch your eyes,

0:22:210:22:24

when you see a row of them and you think, "Why did that catch my eye?"

0:22:240:22:27

But it did. Or it grabs you somewhere.

0:22:270:22:29

It's been fantastic because the standard is so high,

0:22:310:22:36

the variety so wide and the messages so sincere,

0:22:360:22:41

I just find the whole thing rather moving, actually.

0:22:410:22:44

I've really, really enjoyed it.

0:22:460:22:47

I love looking at art anyway

0:22:470:22:49

and I think there's some really good art here -

0:22:490:22:52

better than I ever imagined - it's very good!

0:22:520:22:54

If we've done our job well, I think

0:22:540:22:57

we've curated an amazing pack of ten Christmas cards,

0:22:570:23:01

which should sell millions, to the benefit of Children In Need.

0:23:010:23:06

Later in the programme, we will reveal our final ten designs,

0:23:080:23:11

but if you did send one in, thank you so much.

0:23:110:23:14

Absolutely brilliant to see

0:23:140:23:15

so many different expressions of what Christmas means to you.

0:23:150:23:19

One image that has always been popular on Christmas cards

0:23:190:23:23

is the candle - for Christians, a reminder that

0:23:230:23:26

whatever the time of year, Jesus is the light of the world.

0:23:260:23:30

-MUSIC PLAYING

-..to go absolutely bonkers!

0:25:300:25:33

Big Church Day Out caters for all music tastes.

0:25:330:25:37

Mobo award-winning rap artist Guvna B is here

0:25:370:25:40

for the eighth year running.

0:25:400:25:42

-Guvna B, welcome to Songs Of Praise.

-Thank you.

0:25:420:25:46

-About time we had you on here, I feel!

-I know, man!

0:25:460:25:48

This year was amazing for me. I grew up with this programme.

0:25:480:25:51

-It's quite cool to be on it.

-It's cool for us, too!

0:25:510:25:54

Now, you use rap music to get your message across,

0:25:540:25:58

but as an art form, it's not always associated with positive things.

0:25:580:26:03

Yeah, definitely. I think it is often associated with violence,

0:26:030:26:08

misogyny, but there's tonnes of artists, not just me,

0:26:080:26:11

that are using rap as a way to really inspire people.

0:26:110:26:14

# What can wash away my sins? #

0:26:140:26:17

I think my main kind of mission is to encourage people that God

0:26:170:26:22

has created all these different ways to worship him

0:26:220:26:27

and I'm using rap music as a way to inspire everyone that God has given

0:26:270:26:32

them a purpose, a hope, a future, and we can share that through music.

0:26:320:26:37

Something I and I think a lot of people will find very encouraging

0:26:370:26:40

is your personal testimony of how you came to the faith.

0:26:400:26:44

We were on a small council estate in East London.

0:26:440:26:47

Home and church, it was amazing, but on the estate,

0:26:470:26:51

I was being pulled in a different direction.

0:26:510:26:53

But when I was about 15, me and a few friends were playing

0:26:530:26:56

football in the playground at school,

0:26:560:26:58

about six of us in the playground, pouring down with rain

0:26:580:27:01

and out of nowhere, a massive lightning bolt struck

0:27:010:27:03

the middle of the playground and we all kind of fell to the floor.

0:27:030:27:06

But in the middle of the playground

0:27:060:27:08

was a good friend of mine, Izzy, and he was unconscious,

0:27:080:27:10

and they just couldn't get him breathing,

0:27:100:27:12

so he got rushed to hospital and was put on an intensive care machine.

0:27:120:27:16

For me, I just couldn't think of anything else to do

0:27:160:27:19

but to run to God and, thankfully, for me and my friends

0:27:190:27:23

and all the people we knew, God came through and healed him,

0:27:230:27:26

and it just inspired me that, you know what,

0:27:260:27:28

I don't just want a saviour for the difficult times,

0:27:280:27:30

but whenever there is trouble or difficult situations,

0:27:300:27:34

or I need an answer to prayer, he is the first one I run to.

0:27:340:27:37

Well, we're going to hear one of your tunes now.

0:27:370:27:39

-Can you tell us about it?

-So, this is Nothing But The Blood.

0:27:390:27:42

As I said, I grew up as a Christian and this has always been

0:27:420:27:44

my favourite hymn, and I wanted loads of people to hear it, but not

0:27:440:27:48

everyone loves hymns as much as I do, so I thought, "You know what?

0:27:480:27:51

"I'm going to do a rap version". And this was the result!

0:27:510:27:54

# No other fount I know

0:27:540:27:56

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:27:560:27:58

# Yo, me and Adam, man, we've really got to have words

0:27:580:28:01

# I'm sorry, brother, but I heard you made it all worse

0:28:010:28:04

# I'm stuck, I don't know what works

0:28:040:28:05

# I know it ain't all your fault

0:28:050:28:07

# You're as flawed as me

0:28:070:28:08

# I know what it's like when I let Satan talk to me

0:28:080:28:11

# And though I've read all these books

0:28:110:28:12

# And I've read all these verses

0:28:120:28:14

# Why when I progress do I get caught reversing?

0:28:140:28:17

# I'm keeping it moving, trying to find your grace

0:28:170:28:20

# I just feel like in my life, I've made so many mistakes

0:28:200:28:23

# What can wash away my sins?

0:28:230:28:25

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:28:250:28:28

# What can make me whole again?

0:28:280:28:32

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:28:320:28:35

# Oh, precious is the flow

0:28:350:28:37

# That makes me white as snow

0:28:370:28:41

# No other fount I know

0:28:410:28:43

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:28:430:28:45

# They think I'm crazy

0:28:450:28:48

# And they don't understand where I've been lately

0:28:480:28:50

# I've been battling myself, but can he save me?

0:28:500:28:53

# I put my faith up on that shelf and yeah, it changed me

0:28:530:28:55

# You could tell that I've been lazy

0:28:550:28:57

# It's the world that I was craving

0:28:570:28:59

# But then I had a dream

0:28:590:29:02

# He told me life ain't even always what it seems

0:29:020:29:04

# Cos every test is a lesson

0:29:040:29:06

# Every lesson is a blessing if you choose to see the message

0:29:060:29:10

# What can wash away my sin?

0:29:100:29:12

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:29:120:29:16

# What can make me whole again?

0:29:160:29:18

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:29:180:29:21

# Oh, precious is the flow

0:29:210:29:24

# That makes me white as snow

0:29:240:29:27

# No other fount I know

0:29:270:29:30

# Nothing but the blood of Jesus

0:29:300:29:32

# And so I'm here

0:29:320:29:34

# And I'm still standing by his grace, it disappeared

0:29:340:29:37

# All of my failures, all my shame, now I see clear

0:29:370:29:40

# And that's because no other name has brought me near

0:29:400:29:43

# And I can't wait to see his face, I'm pressing on

0:29:430:29:46

# All my mistakes, they are erased and now I'm strong

0:29:460:29:49

# It's like the judge has closed the case, I can't move on

0:29:490:29:52

# And yeah, I've moved from place to place

0:29:520:29:54

# But now I've found where I belong...

0:29:540:29:55

# Wave your hands with me

0:29:550:29:57

# It was the blood, it was the blood of Jesus

0:29:570:29:59

# He saved us all!

0:29:590:30:01

# It was the blood... #

0:30:010:30:03

Earlier in the programme,

0:30:030:30:05

we selected the ten winning designs

0:30:050:30:06

for our Christmas card competition...

0:30:060:30:08

..and here they are.

0:30:090:30:11

They will be available in the shops from September

0:30:120:30:15

and, of course, all in aid of BBC Children In Need.

0:30:150:30:18

So, it's the perfect way to send your Christmas greetings

0:30:180:30:22

and raise money for a worthy cause.

0:30:220:30:24

Next week, cards will be flying off the shelves for Fathers' Day

0:31:040:31:08

and here, on Songs Of Praise,

0:31:080:31:09

Connie will be meeting some remarkable dads.

0:31:090:31:12

Well, we've had a fantastic time here at the Big Church Day Out,

0:31:180:31:21

and we've had some great weather,

0:31:210:31:23

but our final hymn is Carl Boberg's How Great Thou Art.

0:31:230:31:27

Josie d'Arby joins 25,000 people at the annual Big Church Day Out in West Sussex, meeting festival-goers, people working behind the scenes and some of the top names in global Christian music performing on the main stage.
