Hire the choir

A gospel choir, with its rich harmonies and infectious rhythms, adds a soulful, spiritual dimension to music projects of all kinds.  Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir is rooted in the church tradition, singing regularly in two central London churches, but we love to sing outside of church too.  Since 2006 we've been providing music for a huge variety of 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!  Our flexible and creative approach means that we can respond to requests of all kinds from large choirs to smaller groups and solo singers.

Weddings & events

Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir singing at a wedding

Soul Sanctuary has been providing gospel music for all types of events big and small, since 2006.  This includes weddings, festivals, corporate events, and memorial services. Highlights include appearances at London's Jazz Cafe, recordings for BBC Radio 2 and 4, St Paul's Cathedral, and the Greenbelt Festival.

Our wedding clients love our well organized and personal service.  We have bought joy to many ceremonies in the way The Kingdom Choir did with their rendition of 'Stand by Me' at the Royal Wedding in 2018.  We collaborate closely with couples to ensure that all expectations are met.  One couple asked to recreate the famous wedding scene from 'Love Actually' at an unforgettable Christmas marriage and at another ceremony, we sang 'God Only Knows' by the Beach Boys, and led the entire wedding party on a gospel-themed procession through the streets of London.

Sessions

As well as producing our own recordings, Soul Sanctuary has extensive studio experience including work for the BBC Radio 2 and 4, BBC Television, Premier Radio and even for commercial indie artists.

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.
