Following last year’s cancellation due to bad weather, we are pleased to be able to re-offer John Bell’s lecture. Please choose one session.
The song of God’s People - Friday 22 February 2019 7pm-9.30pm
In this workshop we will look at aspects of the Church’s song which deserve reflection, particularly psalms, songs from the global church and songs that teach us about the life of Jesus.
Reasons to praise and limitless resources - Saturday 23 February 2019 9.30am-2pm
We examine why people sing, what it does for us and for God. We also look at the hidden potential in all congregations to sing, what helps and hinders, and how people who don’t believe in their own voice can be encouraged.
John Bell is an ordained minister of the Church of Scotland and a Member of the Iona Community. He has produced many collections of original hymns and
songs and two collections of songs of the World Church. An occasional broadcaster and lecturer in
theological colleges, he is primarily concerned with the renewal of congregational worship at grass roots level.
