Backing tracks to sing along to

If you don’t have any instrumentalists who can play live for your choir, singing along to a Soul Sanctuary gospel backing track is a great option. We have lots to choose from! 

Cost: Free

Gospel singing workshops

You could have a single ‘taster’ workshop, or a series of workshops. Our gospel workshops – led by our experienced workshop leaders and professional musicians – are relaxed, eye-opening and very enjoyable. They’re the perfect way to experience first-hand what it’s like to sing gospel music in a group setting. 

Cost to you: we ask for a contribution of towards our costs starting from £80

Come to one of our open rehearsals in central London

Once a month, we welcome visitors who are thinking about starting their own gospel choirs to sit in and observe one of our choir rehearsals at Farm Street Catholic Church or St James’s Piccadilly (CofE) – and you’d be welcome to stay for the service afterwards too, and have coffee and a chat at the end. 

No charge

A guest 'appearance' from Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir at your church to provide gospel music worship

Because there’s nothing like experiencing a gospel choir in the flesh to really give the congregation a taste of what it’s actually like... We are very experienced at working within structured liturgy, and we could provide songs, mass parts, and/or a sung psalm. 

Cost to you: this varies hugely depending on your location etc (please contact us to discuss in detail)

'Borrow' a Soul Sanctuary choir director

You could arrange for one of our choir directors to come and lead your existing church choir or music group, for one session or a number of sessions. 

Cost starts at £40
