St Davids Diocese is inviting entries into a competition to find a new liturgical hymn to celebrate its centenary and that of the Church in Wales in 2020.

There are two categories: an Open category and one reserved for entries from Church in Wales Schools. Entries by multiple authors will be accepted. Authors may submit multiple entries. There is no entry fee. Eligibility is not confined to composers resident in St Davids Diocese.

The hymn can be new words set either to an existing tune or a new tune. It should be celebratory in tone and suitable for congregational hymn singing. Entries can be in English and/or Welsh.

It is hoped that the winning entry will be included in the order of service for the diocesan centenary service in St Davids Cathedral

Entries can be submitted electronically or by post. The closing date for entries is March 1st 2020
