The London Festival of Contemporary Church Music could not survive without donations from generous individuals, trusts, and sponsors. There are many ways to support the Festival, including commissioning a new work, sponsoring an artist, or simply making a one-off donation.
Church music today embraces a wide variety of styles, reflecting the different traditions of Christian worship around the world and even in this country. Within this variety there should always be a place for music which explores the contemporary serious idioms, and the Festivals at St Pancras have become the vanguard, including and even commissioning works which engage the mind. The mind of worshippers who desire something beyond the fashionable songs which, although they have their place, are of their essence ephemeral.
