Church Music Dublin

Giving worship a vibrant voice through music


Church Music Dublin (previously, the Dublin and Glendalough Diocesan Church Music Committee), was established by the diocesan councils in 1990. Our vision is to see music placed at the heart of worship in every parish church. We seek to encourage and resource each parish musician to achieve personal and professional fulfilment. We aim to impart the value of our worship heritage and to enhance it by equipping musicians and clergy with an awareness of contemporary resources.

Church Music Dublin Programmes

Our wide–ranging programme of training and information includes a three–year course leading to the Archbishop of Dublin’s Certificate in Church Music (ACCM) and a one–year Foundation Course in Church Music. We produce web–based training videos and a magazine. Living Worship, an annual series of seminars, is a forum for open discussion about liturgy and music in parish churches.
