About the ISS

We love to sing about the love, joy, peace and hope found in God's presence.

The International Staff Songsters (ISS) is the representative choir of The Salvation Army in the UK territory with the Republic of Ireland. We love to sing and share the truth of God's boundless and unconditional love for the world. 

Join us at one of our Saturday festivals or for Sunday worship. 

Once a month, from September to June, we come together as a group to present a variety of musical styles and to lead Christian worship at a Salvation Army corps in our territory. Our repertoire has something from everyone - including music by composers from The Salvation Army, as well artists such as Eric Whitacre, Mark Hayes, Will Todd and Sir John Taverner.

We are all volunteer members who have a personal Christian faith and are active in our local Salvation Army corps. 

Profits from our recordings and our concerts support the work of The Salvation Army. We hope you will purchase these either via the SP&S shop or when attending one of our festivals.

We are blessed to reach thousands of people via TV and radio appearances and in concerts all over the world; from singing in cathedrals, community halls, slums and prisons, to concert venues and every Christmas at London's Royal Albert Hall. Our global tours include ministry in the United States of America, Canada, Argentina, Uruguay, Estonia, Scandinavia, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Australia and New Zealand.

We rehearse every Wednesday evening (from September to November and from January to June) at the UKI headquarters of The Salvation Army in London. For enquiries about the International Staff Songsters email: .
