SIDMOUTH GOSPEL CHOIR is an inclusive, community choir, under Christian leadership but open to people of any faith or none at all.
SGC sing contemporary gospel with an authentic, ‘big’ sound and an infectious, heartwarming feel.
Above all, we enjoy what we do!
The roots of modern Gospel are in the songs of hope and freedom sung by African slaves in America’s Deep South.
Many of these were based on the songs of the Israelites held captive in Egypt thousands of years ago.
Their cry for freedom and message of hope in times of trouble is still relevant today.
“I'm gonna make a gospel record and tell Jesus I cannot bear these burdens alone.”
“Blues are the songs of despair, but gospel songs are the songs of hope.”
