CCC&TSPM issued a notice on Thursday on its website to collect original hymns for the compilation of a sinicized hymnal.
In a bid to encourage Chinese believers to create more and better chorales, and also promote the Sinicization of hymns, CCC&TSPM(China Christian Council & Three-self Patriotic Movement) decided to edit and publish a new hymnal created by Chinese indigenes with Chinese rhythm for worshipping and gathering.
The state-approved umbrella organization for Protestant churches said they would establish a team to gather and arrange the works, which should be original and reflect Chinese taste. The deadline for submission is the end of June.
