From Faith Action Programme:

Sunday 19 May, 7-9pm

St Cuthbert’s Church, Edinburgh

You are invited to join us at the launch of God Welcomes All, the Church of Scotland’s new hymnary supplement.

This new collection features over 200 hymns and songs in a wide range of styles by writers from Scotland and around the world. The majority have been written in the last 20 years and with a focus on hospitality and welcome, the book features contemporary themes such as creation and the climate crisis, lament, healing, pilgrimage, ageing and dementia, migration, and reconciliation.

The launch event will feature special guests who have songs included in the collection, and we are forming a choir to help lead singing on the night.

Tickets are free but expected to go quickly, so sign up now to be part of the choir (deadline 26th April), to join the singing from your seat, or simply to enjoy the music.

If you are unable to be in Edinburgh that week, don't worry! Faith Action are hoping to hold regional launch events at other times.
