Join us for a weekend of learning, singing, and inspiration with John L. Bell, hymn writer, song leader, broadcaster, ordained minister in the Church of Scotland, and a member of the ecumenical Iona Community.
John Bell’s hymns, songs, and arrangements of global music appear in numerous hymnals around the world. He oversaw the production of the hymnal for the Church of Scotland, Church Hymnary (4th ed.). Bell was the recipient of the 2018 Thomas Cranmer Award for Worship, one of the annual Lambeth Awards presented by the Archbishop of Canterbury, for his outstanding Christian witness through hymn-writing, broadcasting and social justice.
