The Beacon Gospel Choir About

In 2006, The Beacon Gospel Choir came together as a means of helping people to find their voices and to learn the joy of using them to praise God. It is the conviction of the founders of the Beacon Gospel Choir that  everyone can sing.

 

Quite apart from the recently publicised health benefits of singing, the improvement in our relationship with God by the use of our voices to sing as a means of worship is more far reaching than many of us can imagine.

 

Since those early days, the choir has grown and developed to something both excellent and joyful. Our very existence bears testimony to this fact...

 

...Anyone can sing.

Music

The Beacon Gospel Choir was founded and is run by Penny Lyon and her husband Kevin Washburn.

 

This duo also write their own gospel music, some of which is performed by the choir and by their band 'Out of the Ashes'.

JOIN

We are often approached by people who would like to join the choir and who want to know what is involved for membership. Membership is free, we do not audition for joining and new members are always welcome. However, commitment is essential; we expect all our members to work hard to learn their parts, to attend all rehearsals and to be available for at least one performance each month.

If you feel you would like help with your singing before you actually join the choir, then let us know and we’d love to help you get started.

 

If you would like to know more, you can either come and talk to us at one of our performances, or get in touch with us through the email address opposite.
