About the Festival

The London Festival of Contemporary Church Music was founded in 2002 with the aim of showcasing contemporary liturgical music in both service and concert. Based at St Pancras Parish Church, London, the LFCCM has grown to include more than 70 events in venues across London and beyond, dozens of composers, hundreds of performers and thousands of audience members, both live and online, showcasing the very best in contemporary liturgical music for choir and organ. The next Festival takes place from 11 – 19 May.
