Each week  in IDEAS we offer at least one reflection video for use in worship

Micah 4:1-10
We are offering Micah 4:1-10 as a Lectionary Video. This is in the MP4 format which we propose to use from December 2013. We would advise you to test that it works ok with your system by downloading it and then checking that it works OK with your media player and projection software. If there are problems let us know by completeing a report form.

There's a light upon the mountains.
Hymns from Digital Hymnbook 1 have had a major make over. We have added the title band and where appropriate have changed the background to something more appropriate. We have also added versions for the other books where they exist.

O come, all ye faithful
We have also worked on the hymns, songs and carols from Digital Hymnbook 2 - Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. We have added the title band and replaced all the backgrounds with photographs taken in and around Bethlehem. We have kept the yellow text with a black shadow as this is most effective for candle lit services. There are now versions that match Singing the Faith and Kids Source.

Download - O come, all ye faithful
Great is our redeeming Lord
Hymns and Songs from Digital Hymbook 3 - Lent, Holy Week, Easter Season have the title band and new backgrounds of photographs mainly taken in and around Jerusalem. Singing the Faith and Kids Source versions have been added.

Download - Great is our redeeming Lord
God loves you and I love you
Hymns and Songs from Digital Hymbook 4 have the title band  added and new backgrounds where appropriate. We have added versions of songs that match Singing the Faith and Kids Source.

This is a good place to mention that we also offer a large selection of good children's songs from people like John Hardwick, Paul Field, Doug Horley and Dave Godfrey.
