OUR STORY

Sheffield Community Gospel Choir is one of the best known and most well-loved Gospel Choirs in Yorkshire.  We were founded in 2013 by Janine Dyer, who continues to lead and direct the choir to this day.  

 

The choir has gone from strength to strength - reaching prominence as one of the country’s finest amateur choirs in the BBC Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year 2016 contest and developing further from there.

In the year to March 2020, the choir performed on numerous prestigious stages across the North, including: joining Take That on their arena tour in Yorkshire (performing to around 80,000 people across the series of 5 dates during spring/summer 2019)

Performing the main stage at the acclaimed Black Music Festival in Leeds and opening a high-profile Charity Gala Dinner at Old Trafford.

Collaboration on the Christmas Festival of Music with celebrated musicians John Reilly and Lewis Nitikman,

in Sheffield.

Here we are in 2024, starting another incredible year with performing at the MOBO Fringe in Sheffield. What an amazing start to our year. 

ITV Calendar commissioned us to perform our Gospel version of Stormzy's amazing song Blinded By Your Grace for their special MOBO news feature.

Look out for all our forthcoming performances to be announced in the coming weeks and months. We are already excited!
