Born in response to social distancing measures, we want to provide all singers, from all denominations, and all corners of the globe, an opportunity to come together to sing and worship.
You are invited to add your voice to a VIRTUAL CHURCH CHOIR.

How it works
If you think of yourself as a technophobe, don’t worry… joining the virtual choir is really easy. When you sign-up, we’ll give you all the info, with easy to follow steps. And if you get confused or overwhelmed, just get in touch, and we’ll be happy to help!
To join the choir, you’ll need to sign-up, and we can then acces the members page. You might like to subscribe to the newsletter too, which will keep you up to speed with when videos and news are released. If you’d like to consider donating to support this new ministry – but there is no pressure to – that would be gratefully recieved.
Once you’ve signed up, and the votes have been counted, we’ll share the arrangements, and video tutorials to help you learn your part. We’ll schedule a few live streamed rehearsals too. Once you’re ready to go, we’ll let you know how to go about recording and sending your part to us. The technical geniuses will then mix your dulcet tones into a choir of angels!
Matt counts himself as priviledged to have worked with some wonderful organisations, as Conductor, Chorus Master and/or Orchestrator. Organisations Matt has worked with include: London Philharmonic Choir, London Symphony Orchesta, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Berlin Rundfunkchor, Opera North. He has performed for HM The Queen in Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, alongside performing in arenas to concert venues, and recording in studios including Abbey Road.
“I want to make sure that everyone who would like to, can take part in this virtual choir, without any pressure to contribute financially. As a musician and leader of worship, I’m passionate about using music in worship; for me, there is no better way to lift praises to God, to adore and communicate with God, than with our voices. For many across the world, the opportunity to worship alongside others is no longer possible. Which is why I’ve been so keen to create a virtual worshipping community, in this virtual church choir.
Ordinarily, my work and ministry takes me to schools, choirs and churches, but during this time of Coronavirus this has all stopped. Like so many others who work for themselves, this is a time of concern for others, for health, and of individual financial challenge. Please know that there is no obligation, but if you feel able and would like to donate to support my ministry at this time, I would be really grateful.”
National Methodist Choir GB brings together singers from across the Methodist Church in Great Britain. NMCGB is a living demonstration that the Methodist Church wasn’t just born in song, but is living and thriving in song now, too.
NMCGB will launch in late 2020. For details about joining the choir, the first course, and more, just drop us an email.
