The GUC music team is available to help you choose music, in particular speak to Liz Warren or Darren Wright if you’re looking for suggestions of songs that fit a particular theme or scripture. We can also give you access to the database of songs that are commonly known at Gungahlin UCA.
If you’re using the lectionary readings for the week there are some great websites that offer song suggestions. These sites also allow for theme search and scripture search.
Before setting songs it is always helpful to ask the music team if they know a particular hymn or song, or if there’s enough time to learn it.
Singing From The Lectionary is a great resource from Natalie Sims in Melbourne, Australia. Natalie offers song suggestions for the week’s lectionary readings that are slightly more traditional. SFTL‘s selections also include songs that are great for communal singing from all over the world.
Together To Celebrate is another great Australian resource curated by David MacGregor in Queensland. Together to Celebrate offers a wide range of song titles including Chris Tomlin, Iona Community, Taize’, Shirley Murray, Hillsong, Matt Redman, Graham Kendrick, Bernadette Farrell, Marty Haugen, Robin Mann, Malcolm Gordon, Paul Somerville and many others.
