Her Majesty will feature on the show, alongside a congregation of friends and supporters of the Scripture Union, to commemorate its 150 years.
The programme will also mark the organisation’s work in encouraging youngsters to explore their faith.
Hosted by Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins the pre-recorded programme will also feature readings by Baroness Floella Benjamin.
The Queen, in fuchsia to mark the occasion, was seated at the head of the congregation.
She regularly reflects on her strong faith in her annual Christmas address to the nation.
Reverend Tim Hastie-Smith, national director of the Scripture Union, said: “It was absolutely brilliant the Queen was able to join us, the fact that she found the time to be with us this afternoon, with a whole load of children and people celebrating God’s love, is an incredible thrill.”
Her Majesty has featured on the show a number of times in its 57-year history.
But it is the first time she has been part of the congregation.
It is the longest-running religious show in the world and continues to pack out churches and venues with enthusiastic congregations.
Songs Of Praise will be on BBC One today at 4.30pm.
