 Let Us Pod - The Clifton Cathedral has won a top national prize at the Jerusalem Awards. The Cathedral's podcast came out the winner - against 10 others - in the new media category which was open to all audio content produced specifically for the internet. Cathedral parishioner Mary Colwell - who produced the podcast - picked up the award at a ceremony in London. She said: "I'm delighted we won - it is a great honour. Let's hope it spurs us on to great things in the future!" "We've already produced a further special podcast for Sound of Many Waters, our ecological series of events. And a new series of podcasts featuring reflections on issues of concern in peoples' lives will soon be available from" Let Us Pod - The Clifton Cathedral podcast is an introduction to the many activities that make up life in around the Cathedral parish in Bristol. It features contributions from people and groups in the parish. Monsignor Robert Corrigan, Dean of Clifton Cathedral said: "I think the podcast is a great way for people to find out about the Cathedral, whether they are visiting our city or have just moved into the area. "When it was launched in December last year, it was suggested that I should play it instead of a sermon, but the podcast isn't a sermon or a speech - it's an open invitation for people to come and join in our life and community. It doesn't say everything about us but I hope that people will be encouraged by what they hear and will want to find out more. Because in the end we aren't talking about ourselves but about Jesus Christ who is at the heart of everything we are." Podcasts from the Clifton Diocese are available from
