Songs of Hope

For our gatherings this week people were invited to share a piece of music, of any genre, that conveys to them a message of hope. During the service we listened to the music, with those who chose it being encouraged to say a few words about the piece, why it is important to them and why it gives them hope. Listening to the music, sharing what the songs mean to us, provided an opportunity to reflect on where we find hope and how music can be used as a way to give us hope, in different ways, whether that be by helping centre us spiritually, or it giving us hope for a better future, or a hope that God will use us & extend grace and truth and love through us.

If you’d like to listen to the that were played you can do so on Spotifty or Youtube. A full list of the songs chosen is listed below.
