Membership in the rest of the world

Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and USA

If you live in any of the above countries, you should join through your national office. If you are not sure who to contact, please email membership@rscm.com as soon as possible. We would be happy to point you in the right direction.

For all other parts of the world…

If you are not in one of the countries listed above, then your membership will be administered by the RSCM based in the UK. Types of membership are set out below:

Important Note – Please read:

Please note that new applications submitted (with effect from 18th March 2020) may experience a delay in being processed due to the current COVID-19 outbreak.

As staff are all now working remotely, there is nobody in the administration centre to receive post, and so everything is being processed digitally. In this respect, please refrain from applying and paying via cheque as we will not be able to process your application until such time as we are allowed back in our building.

If we can encourage individuals/churches to apply and pay via the online application and payment system, this will allow your application to be processed as normal (albeit, possibly slightly delayed).

All applications will be processed systematically as quickly as possible, but this may delay your MusicDirect Webshop account from being established. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. Thank you.
