Bringing Good News, Joy & Inspiration through Gospel Music

""Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” – Psalm 95: 1-2

The Cambridge University Gospel Choir is a registered University society formed in November 2016 by Carol Ibe, a PhD student and Gates Scholar in Cambridge University’s Department of Plant Sciences.

The choir consists of undergraduate/postgraduate students and other members of the University across a wide range of disciplines, including medicine, engineering, plant sciences, languages, history, law, politics and international development. Although we come from different walks of life, we come together as one body in Christ to celebrate and share the love of Jesus and the power his word brings through gospel music.

WHY WE SING

  • To proclaim the good news of Christ and the freedom His word brings to all through inspiring gospel music
  • To express the love of God and to share this love to all around us.
  • To inspire and uplift others, especially those going through difficult or challenging times.
  • To be happy and forget all our worries

WHAT WE DO

Sing! Sing!! And Sing some more!!! We love singing gospel music.
As the Cambridge academic terms are very short and can be quite challenging, we come together every week to learn new inspiring and powerful gospel songs and to sing together. The Gospel Music society provides a unique space for students and others to feel loved and to be part of an inspiring and uplifting community.

We organize regular gospel worship events and concerts every term. We also sing outside the university and get involved in outreach programs that align with our vision.

We have performed in various places including the BBC Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year competition, Queens College (University of Cambridge) May ball, the University Gospel Choir of the Year Competition, the Bishop of Ely's residence, Ecumenical Service for Christian Leaders in Cambridge, School for Disabled Children, concerts, worship celebrations and more.
