Our Mission

The RSCM enables the flourishing of church music, thereby bringing people closer to God in worship and encouraging church communities to grow.

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.

Our concise and readable Strategic Plan (2022 – 2027) sets out the foundations for this: click the button to view
