Our Mission

Christian ethos underpins everything we do.

We are a Christian charity promoting ‘the study, practice and improvement of music in worship’.

Mindful of our forthcoming centenary in 2027, we wish to ensure that our priorities enable us to be able to celebrate 100 successful years of supporting church music.

How does the RSCM deliver its work?

Internationally, through our core programmes:

  • Voice for Life, a comprehensive training programme for choral singers of all ages and abilities
  • Church Music Skills, a range of practical training schemes and awards in essential skills

Centrally, through:

  • our member magazine, Church Music Quarterly
  • our quarterly guide to choosing music for worship, Sunday by Sunday
  • the RSCM Press, publishing music and training resources
  • our website
  • our national youth choir – the RSCM Millennium Youth Choir
  • our training choirs – RSCM Voices and Cathedral Singers
  • our courses for singers, organists, instrumentalists and worship leaders

Regionally, through the work of our volunteers, who organize events and training including:

  • festivals
  • local courses, summer schools, workshops and training days
  • singing award schemes

In partnership with others:

  • consulting with the churches nationally and locally
  • collaborating with other church, music, and educational organizations
