RSCM UK Memberships

The RSCM offers a wide range of benefits to members, to help you and the other musicians in your worshipping community make the best music possible.

If you are new to the RSCM, please see below for further information about our UK membership categories and associated benefits.

We encourage our current members to run events through their RSCM Local Area Committees. Click here to see reasons why this would benefit you.

It is now possible for existing members to renew memberships via our online facility. Please see our FAQ’s for further details about this.

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.
