Songs for Church Anniversaries

  • VU528 God of life in Christ you lead us (Jane Parker Huber) "Celebrating past and present, consecrating future days". Good words to a standard hymn tune. New words to old tunes.
  • NCH371 God creation's great designer (Jane Parker Huber) Excellent words, particularly if you worship in an older church building, or have an anniversary to celebrate. Sung to a well-known tune (HOLY MANNA). New words to old tunes   
  • FFS57 Song of faith that sings forever (Shirley Erena Murray) Simple tune and good words reaching back to the past and forward to the future. Can be sung to ABBOTS LEIGH. New words to old tunes.
  • NCH370 / UMH087 / W&R685 / URW127 What gift can we bring? A good offering song. Also good for a church anniversary. Lyrics. The tune is a bit tricky.

Glad you find this helpful - there are a couple of different tunes for "This is a day of new beginnings", one is by the musician Carlton Young.
Hope this is helpful!
