Attention Hymnwriters and Composers

The New Zealand Hymnbook Trust has been collecting and publishing New Zealand hymns and songs for the last thirty years, beginning with “Alleluia Aotearoa” in 1993.  The most recent collection, “Hope is our Song”, was produced in 2009.

New Zealand has a great reputation by now as a fresh, interesting voice in the world of Christian music, with a considerable body of hymns sung and appreciated all over the world. Shirley Erena Murray and Colin Gibson have been huge contributors to this work.

No doubt there is a whole new generation of poets and musicians out there, giving glory to God with their music for worship!

This is a preliminary call to that generation of new writers.  We are keen to know what’s out there nowadays, with a view to compiling another collection. If you write hymns and songs, please make contact with us, so we can discuss further when the time comes.

Please contact Marnie Barrell
