  • New offertory song introduced at National Worship Conference

    Jesus invites us to feast is an offering song by Tricia Coldren, pastoral liturgist at St Mark’s (Kitsilano) Anglican Church in Vancouver.  She generously offers it to be used to the glory of God.

    Tricia led morning prayer on Wednesday at the ELCIC/ACC National Worship Conference in July and included this offering song. She taught it in 2 parts, the soprano melody line and the bass line, and as marked, sang it with energy.  She used her hands to indicate pitches rising and falling as she taught us.  Once the two parts had been learned, we sang it several times together (no piano or other instruments). Tricia has learned much about congregational song and worship from the workshops offered by St. Gregory of Nyssa Episcopal community in San Francisco.
