Since its inception, Singing the Faith Plus has published approaching 100 hymn texts not included in the Singing the Faith hymn book. Some of the hymns have been available before in other places; most have not. Some of the authors had already been featured in Singing the Faith; many had not.
Our aim has been to encourage individuals and groups to write hymns and to publish texts that complement those already available in Singing the Faith itself. Some texts have been very much of their moment (for example, responding directly to a natural disaster) or helpful for a specific service, such as Remembrance Sunday. Most are of value the whole year round.
All hymns published on Singing the Faith Plus are published on the understanding that they can be used freely by site-users, with any copyright information printed as appropriate. If an author or composer is listed with CCLI, the hymn should be included under regular reporting requirements. To check if an author or composer is registered with CCLI, refer to CCL and MRL Authorised Catalogue Lists. These are available online at: churches.uk.ccli.com/resources/authorised
To assist in using the new hymns on this site, they are listed below against:
(a) the Contents headings as in the printed hymn book;
(b) the Elements of Worship category that can also be searched on the right hand side of this page. You may also usefully search new hymns under Festivals and Seasons or Special Sundays.
This list will be updated as new hymns are added to the site.
