Imagine a church without music?!

We can’t. We exist to stimulate a desire for excellence in the leadership of church music, and help church music to flourish across Canada.

We help church music to flourish.

As times continue to be challenging for Canada’s churches, and the music and musicians that give so much to their life, please consider supporting the organisation that is trying to make a difference for your congregation. SICM has supported church music and their musicians with a high-quality retreat, educational and community program since 1970, and in 2024 is preparing a bold move to move onto a true national stage with a convenient, accessible and inspiring experience for the musicians of all denominations and ability levels, from beginner to professional. SICM’s in-person program is designed to be hosted from anywhere in Canada, and is made conveniently available online across all timezones.

We are deeply grateful for your support!
