Hire the choir

Outside of our regular church services, Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir provides music for a huge variety of musical projects, ranging from music for television to private functions, weddings, fundraising events, school-based projects, conferences and festivals.

We take pride in using our unique skill – gospel choral harmony in a modern eclectic style – to provide the perfect musical fit for all occasions. We charge transparently: the more singers, the bigger the fee! We are very happy to provide large choirs and bands for bigger budgets, but are also happy to devise smaller, creative solutions when budgets are tighter.

Weddings & events

Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir singing at a wedding in 2016

Soul Sanctuary has a decade of experience of providing gospel music for all types of events big and small - including weddings, festivals, corporate events, and memorial services. Highlights include multiple appearances at Marlborough International Jazz Festival, sharing the stage at HASTE Festival alongside Jeff Beck and Lulu, and providing gospel music for a special event at Westminster Cathedral.

We truly love singing at weddings! One of our favourite weddings was when the choir were asked to recreate the famous wedding scene from 'Love Actually' at an unforgettable Christmas marriage last year. At another ceremony, we sang 'God Only Knows' by the Beach Boys during the service, and led the entire wedding party on a gospel-themed procession through the streets of London.

Sessions

Back in 2006, Soul Sanctuary did its first studio session - providing the soundtrack for BBC television drama 'Fear of Fanny'. Ever since then, we have been providing groups of singers large and small for a wide variety of recording sessions, ranging from sessions for Premier Radio to gospel backing vocals for a commercial indie artist.  And the choir is currently working closely with BBC producers to provide bespoke arrangements for our upcoming recording session for Radio 2 at the legendary Maida Vale Studios.

Gospel workshops

Our gospel workshops – led by our experienced workshop leaders and professional musicians – are relaxed, eye-opening and very enjoyable too! They’re the perfect way to experience first-hand what it’s like to sing gospel music in a group setting. We mainly deliver workshops in churches as part of our toolkit, but we also provide sessions for community groups, schools, musical festivals, offices and in all sorts of other settings.
