Singing the Faith

With the start of Advent also comes a fresh start for the Singing the Faith website.

The new site will go live on the first Sunday in Advent. With a wider scope of resources; a cleaner, more accessible design; and faster, easier-to-use search options, we hope that StF+ will better support the planning of meaningful, creative and inclusive worship.
