About Epworth

The Epworth Hymnal

One of the joys of worship at Epworth is the opportunity to sing and publish a number of theologically and poetically significant hymn texts which, quite undeservedly, have fallen into general dis-use and out of the living memory of much, if not all, of the worshiping church.

For several years now, Epworth Chapel on the Green has been in an on-going process of compiling The Epworth Hymnal, in loose-leaf form, drawing primarily upon hymn texts and hymn tunes which are no longer protected by copyright. It's not an easy process, but it has the benefits of intentionality in the content of the search and joy in the discovery of what that search yields.
