The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) has expressed thanks to churches who are attempting, in a variety of ways, to continue their mission through the ongoing coronavirus crisis and to keep in touch with people.
In a statement this week, RSCM announced a series of intiatives which the organisation hopes will lift spirits.
“In the absence of all the usual routines of life, we have put together a whole range of initiatives, which we hope will help to hold everyone together,” RSCM says.
“We can still work on fulfilling our mission until the darkness lifts and we are in the light again.
“For everyone, wherever you are: Our website now features, free for all, Hymn of the Day, and Sunday Self-Service – a simple act of worship with music, readings and prayers which will change weekly. (The link is below).
“Specific resources for Holy Week and Easter will be available in due course. We will shortly be adding a daily vocal warm-ups video – a short session to keep your body moving, and voice in good shape if you’re a singer. If you don’t consider yourself a singer, do it anyway!”
