Empowering Community Gospel Choir

D Johnson (Choir Director)

Although we continued choir practise on Zoom, the atmosphere, warmth and love were felt amongst every member that was in attendance.  There was a strong sense of community along with social inclusion.   Even though we adhered to social distancing, we were able to express our emotions of gratitude and gladness.  Going through this season of ‘uncertainly.’  It is our aim to continue to sing our way through sadness, loneliness and isolation particularly during this pandemic.   

Singing can help to improve our health and wellbeing. 

*Relieves stress and tension

*Boosts confidence

*It’s a mindful activity

*Improves social bonding and social cohesion

*Provides the opportunity to express emotions

*Improves breathing, increases oxygen intake and lung capacity

 

It was so good to be in fellowship with choir members singing together

Choir Members' Joyful Comments on Returning to Practice Post Lockdown
September 2020

M Alleyne

What a great night, first seeing each other In the flesh then singing our hearts out. Oh!  It was great the good Lord was with us and we show Him we all have faith in him and ourselves.  We did not have time to think of COVID- 19. So, until we next time, we met, keep exercising those vocal chords, stay safe God bless.🙏🏼🙏🏼

The last six months of the unknown, I thank God for His abundant love♥️ and the love we have for each other .it was a good night of rejoicing and praise it were a good night god bless you all have a blessed day 

W Griffiths MBE

I concur with previous comments.  With Christ in the vessel we sailed through the storm.  The joy of our Lord radiated within us to give an outstanding performance.  Although we were separated in body for six months, we proved we were together in spirit.  I thank God for all of us who are members of the choir and pray that long may we continue to sing in praise to our father in heaven. See you soon.

Yes, it was good to be back in person to choir practice. Beautiful singing may God bless the vocal chords, along with every part of us keeping us safe under the shadow of His wings.

"Had it not been for members within this group, I would have found it most difficult due to the current situation ... it has helped me cope with two different issues - the pandemic situation and being made redundant at the same time."

"Most of the songs I could sing along with. Some reminded me of my childhood days"
