New Methodist song/hymn book

Methodist Conference 09 decided to go ahead with the idea that the church needs a new music resource to take over from Hymns and Psalms. There have been mixed views on whether this should happen, or what format it should take - but that particular boat has sailed. So I'm not looking for views on that! New groups have been set up to look at aspects of the resource and I am on the 'Content' group - we have a lot to do in a very short time.

What I am looking for are people - especially Methodist and most helpfully (but not exclusively) women - who write worship songs and hymns.

Please let me know if you are such a person or know such people.


  1. Sounds like you'll be having to squeeze an even bigger quart into your pint pot (of orange juice of course). A big piece of work to add to ongoing commitments. I'd offer to help but am already being asked to contribute through the F&O process. Good luck!

  2. Yes, I'm getting it through F&O as well! So do I get two bites of the cherry in terms of saying what I think?

    I've started at the back of the current list and am working backwards, over half-way through vol 3 so far.

    Trying to do a few dozen a day, more than than and I can't se the wood for the trees (or the good stuff for the.... less good)
