Praise Him: Songs of Praise in the New Testament

York Courses

SPCK Group

We are used to singing hymns of praise when we go to church but often we miss the hymns and poems that are there in the New Testament. This course will explore five different Songs of Praise from the New Testament, looking at what they tell us about God and Jesus but also reflecting on what they tell us about us and our faith.

The five sessions focus on:

Session 1: Gratitude (Ephesians 1.3-14)
Session 2: Image of God (Colossians 1.15-20)
Session 3: Humility (Philippians 2.5-11)
Session 4: New birth (1 Peter 1.3-12)
Session 5: Word made flesh (John 1.1-14)

The course booklet is accompanied by a lively CD, featuring the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, ‘art nun’, the late Sister Wendy Beckett, the multi-award winning actor, David Suchet CBE, and Editor and Publisher of the Methodist Recorder, Moira Sleight.
