We had a break from singing at the usual central London church services during December and instead we sang at St Paul’s Cathedral in aid of the MS Society and recorded a Morning Worship Service for BBC Radio 4.
St James's Church, Piccadilly - "The Gospel Music Spirit"
We start regular monthly services at St James’s Church again on Sunday 8th January 2017 at 6pm. This will be our usual Eucharist service which is part of St James’s “Sundays at Six” programme of services known as “The Gospel Music Spirit”. We return to St James’s in February for a service which will be preceded by a gospel singing workshop where participants will learn a gospel song and then sing it during the service with the choir. The workshop will take place in the meeting rooms downstairs at 4.30pm on Sunday 12th February. There is no charge and booking is not required. It promises to be a fun occasion, suitable for those with no previous singing experience. We’ll top it all off with a cup of tea and a slice of cake after the service. What better way to help beat the winter blues?
As we proceed through the winter months and the Church’s season of Lent we’ll conclude with a Palm Sunday service at 6pm on 9th April.

Sunday 8th January
Sunday 12th February (free, gospel singing workshop starts at 4.30pm in the meeting room downstairs).

Farm Street Catholic Church in Mayfair
Soul Sanctuary also sings at the very inspiring location of Farm Street Catholic Church in Mayfair, just off Berkeley Square and a few minutes walk from Green Park Underground Station. Our services there start at 5.30pm on the last Sunday of the month and throughout the Winter season we will help mark “Peace Sunday” on 29th January and Mother’s Day on 26th March. The last Sunday of the month often coincides with the fourth Sunday of the month, which is the time when the LGBT Catholics Westminster Group meets to worship. They offer refreshments after the service to which all are invited including those who have come primarily to hear gospel music sung by the choir.
