The Big Sing with John Bell

The Big Sing with John Bell


John Bell of the Iona Community is a hymn writer, Church of Scotland minister and broadcaster. He travels the world teaching on worship, spirituality and social justice.

The music and words that John Bell writes often express the experience of people to God as much as speaking of God to people. ‘Heaven shall not wait for the poor to lose their patience…’, ‘God give us life when all around spells death…’,‘Take, oh take me as I am; summon out what I shall be…’.

The Big Sing is an opportunity to experience singing these inspiring and challenging songs, led by this inspiring and challenging man in the company of many other enthusiastic people. All are welcome – this is not an event just for trained singers or members of choirs. Come and sing your heart out!
