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   
  • 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!
