Liberating the Song of God’s People
Singing the Unsung is a new DVD resource designed especially for music leaders, worship design teams, and pastors seeking the revitalization of worship for the 21st century. Featuring world-renowned musician and theologian John Bell, Singing the Unsung guides the participants’ reflection on the theology of the Church’s song and offers practical techniques on how we can sing and pray together with integrity.
With footage from workshops and worship in both the U.S. and in Scotland, the two DVD discs include nine 30-minute video segments and introduce 30 songs from around the globe for congregational or choral use. Along with the downloadable discussion guide the sessions may be utilized as individual segments or multi-day to multi-week workshops or classes.
Note: this DVD is only currently available in NTSC format. Some, though not all, European stand-alone consumer DVD players may be able to read this. Please check your DVD’s capability before purchase. However, it should play without a problem in computer DVD players

weeWONDERBOX’s flagship urban festival, ColumbaFest, returns to Glasgow city centre on June 8th-10th, 2018. Our theme: ’Dreams & Visions’ … on what makes ‘prophecy’ today.
Expect live music and spoken word, workshops, walks, talks and worship led by a fantastically diverse group of contributors, including Pádraig Ó Tuama, Ian Bradley, Alyson Hallet and John L. Bell. More to be confirmed soon.
Prophets often come from the margins, challenging our complacent worldview with a startling new perspective. We will be asking – where are the prophets today? What are they saying? And are we listening to them?
We will draw inspiration from the life of St Columba, the biblical prophets, and contemporary politics to challenge ourselves to engage with the most pressing issues of social justice in our society.
Come for a day, an evening, or for the entire weekend … Early Bird ticket offers (until 8th May) below.
Confirmed so far…
More info on contributors and the programme shape will be available soon.
Detailed day by day listing will be available at the end of May/ beginning of June.
Early Bird Day ticket offers are available (until midnight, Wednesday 27th April 2018) – check them out.
* Early Bird ticket prices are only applicable until midnight on 18th April 2018. Orders received after that time will be charged at the current rate at that time.
