Big Picture

This world is full of believers whose voices are not being heard because they do not fit into mainstream Christianity. The prophetic burden that they carry has just not found an outlet in the current structures. Therefore, the emergence of the spiritual underground, which is buzzing with new life and innovation as a random network of misfits find each other, and a much needed place of safety. These past few years, Common Hymnal has served as a connecting point for this community by aggregating creatives and creativity from within the movement, and, in the process, assembling an intriguing collection of songs, stories and ideas. A key thread: worship with a social conscience. We share ‘this treasure’ via this site, our socials, the various streaming platforms and a monthly newsletter. Our goal is to support these unconventional communities, and to foster a meaningful and consequential exchange between the tribes.

We’re are not in a rush. We are not trying to take over the world. We are trying to build something that is honest and accurate and believable and trustworthy.
