Members receive copies of Laudate, the Guild's magazine, which is published three times per year. The Guild organises regular courses and events around the UK and offers resources to members, including guidance on employment and safeguarding matters.
The Guild offers examinations at various levels from the Preliminary Certificate right up to Fellowship, which is a Masters' level qualification. The examinations are constantly being reviewed in order to reflect changing trends in church music, therefore they should appeal just as much to members of a worship group as to those who perform in a more traditional setting. The Guild also offers examinations in Public Worship to clergy and lay ministers.
