Book Group Feb 21st

The next Book Group is on Monday 21st February. I thought that for a change we would not read a book or an essay but would take a look at some of the hymns that have been used in our Sunday services over the past year. I have taken them from the Orders of Service which have been used by all those who have led those services.

Some of the things that I think it might be useful to discuss  are: what we think is the purpose of hymns in a service of worship, how we respond to different types of hymn, how well written are they, whether they are intelligible to anyone outside the Christian community, does the tune influence our views on a hymn etc.
