John Bell from the Iona Community at the Gibraltar Synod


Many people in the diocese will have heard of John Bell, of if you have not heard of him, you have probably sung one of his hymns.

The Revd John Bell is a minister of the Church of Scotland, a member of the Iona Community, and a broadcaster. He was a guest speaker and guest preacher at the Archdeaconry of Gibraltar Synod last week, inspiring the clergy and lay delegates with stories and insights into congregational development, particularly in music and liturgy. Our liturgy and the place of music in it is vitally important, said John, for "What we sing becomes what we believe".
