GCGC is a community gospel choir based in Godalming in the south west of Surrey. We sing a range of contemporary and traditional gospel music by UK and US artists directed by the incredible Hermione Thomas. We are a true community choir, open to all. Our choir members come from all walks of life, faith and non-faith.
We normally meet from 7.30pm - 9.30pm on Monday evenings, during term-time, in the Octagon at the Church of St Peter and St Paul, Church Street, Godalming GU7 1ER. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we are meeting online on Zoom on Monday evenings. Email us in September for the joining instructions.
Godalming Community Gospel Choir was founded by Emma-Sue Prince in 2011 who had been singing with London-based gospel choirs for a number of years. On moving to Godalming with her family, Emma-Sue missed the passion and dynamics of gospel-singing and decided to start GCGC. Emma-Sue's vision was to have an inclusive gospel choir open to all and aspiring to musical excellence. We now has many members of all ages and from all backgrounds.
We are an award-winning gospel choir who have won several categories in local competitions and we reached the national finals of BBC Gospel Choir of the Year competition in 2015.
