A choir for Tyndale School and East Oxford

Hi There - I'm Harry and I'd like to invite you to be involved in an exciting new project I am running for Autumn/Winter 2019.

The Tyndale Community Gospel Choir will start on Monday 16th September, from 7 - 9pm in the main hall at Tyndale School and we will be meeting every Monday evening thereafter culminating with a foot-tapping, hand-clapping Christmas Gospel Concert featuring the Community Choir.

The Christmas Gospel Concert will be held on Saturday 14th December at The Kings Centre in Botley, so please save the date for your diary.

The Gospel Choir is for anybody aged 16 or over and completely open to the wider community and neighbourhood. So, no matter what your background, feel absolutely free to join us for what promises to be a fantastic weekly project and remember to bring your family and friends along too!

All abilities are welcome, whether you've sung in a choir before or just in the shower, it really doesn't matter. So, come along, join in with the fun and lets make a joyful noise!

Hope to see you soon!
