LEWES SINGS GOSPEL

An award-winning Gospel choir…. for the whole community

TRINITY Church seeks to be an outward-looking and inclusive community. Lewes Sings Gospel started in 2009 as an outworking of this desire.

 

The choir is an opportunity for anyone who wants to try singing in the gospel style. But more than that, we seek to be a vibrant community where it is easy to meet new people, grow friendships and enjoy the journey of learning and singing gospel music together.
