Churches Disability Group's Guide to Hymns Through Lockdown

Tuesday July 14 2020

The Scottish Churches Disability Group (SCDG) is compiling lists of hymns available on YouTube, to help people continue to worship during the Lockdown.

The lists began as a weekly email to one member's congregation, but has now been added to the SCDG website.

Updated every week, the list consists of hymns and songs of praise available on the video-streaming site, ranging from traditional to modern. They usually have the lyrics to allow you to sing along.

There is also a second list consisting of hymns and songs of praise which include sign language, BSL or Makaton.

The SCDG is an ecumenical group which aims to help churches be inclusive of people with all disabilities, by demonstrating and promoting good practice, raising the profile of talented people with disabilities within the churches, and offering solutions to the barriers which keep disabled people from fully participating in church life.
