HYMNS WE LOVE

‘Hymns We Love’ – exploring hymns that take us to the heart of the Christian faith.

New course starts on January 23rd.

Click here for more details.

The ‘Hymns We Love’ series is designed to help people gather together, sing well-loved hymns and explore the explore the Christian faith in a gentle but faithful way.

The series is designed with the older generation in mind, however it can be enjoyed by people of all ages. It’s flexible enough to be used by groups of any size – from large gatherings in a church hall to just two people in someone’s home.

The ‘Hymns We Love’ series was developed by Steve and Pippa Cramer, Pastoral Care and Seniors Minister at Holy Trinity Claygate. Pippa developed our flagship Connections program for seniors to help address issues like loneliness and isolation.

The Cramers realised that the growing older population often have a residual affection for Christian hymns, some of which they may have sung in years gone by.

‘Hymns We Love’ uses those wonderful hymns as a means of sharing the gospel and can be a catalyst for local churches to reach out with friendship and hope.
