The aim of this project is to create a book of songs on the theme of science and faith. There are now nearly 40 songs written. Nine of these have been written in Church of England primary schools in Ely Diocese.
Cathedral Performances of New Songs
The songs written in schools were performed in Ely Cathedral in May 2017 at the Science Festival ‘From Dinosaurs to DNA’ (also a ‘Scientists in Congregations’ project). 320 children took part. The Ely Diocese Deputy Director of Education and two musicians who are regularly involved with children’s music events at the Cathedral helped to ensure this was a day enjoyed by all participants. The children’s songs were professionally videoed.
Creation of a New Video Channel
The videos of the nine songs have been the first uploads to a newly created “You-Tube’ Channel called ‘Sing of God and Science’. Within the first two months of its existence it accrued more than 2500 views.
