Fellowship Diploma

The Fellowship diploma (FGCM), which is taken via modular, distance learning, is the highest qualification awarded by the Guild. It is intended for all musicians who work within the Christian Church, regardless of denomination. The Fellowship course aims to train and develop church musicians to be able to work with understanding and at a high standard. This is achieved by studying liturgical and pastoral aspects of the Church and its music, extending knowledge and understanding of church music in its historical and liturgical contexts, and by learning, developing, and enhancing skills relevant to church music in general and to the candidate’s own denomination in particular.
