Goodnestone Choir evolved from the village Christmas choir in 2013 when it became clear that there was a group who wished to sing more regularly. The choir has grown steadily since this time and we now have over 40  members and expand considerably for special services

We are always keen to have new members, the choir is open to everyone and previous singing experience or an ablity to read music is not required. We rehearse in the church every tuesday 7-8pm. 

We sing at the second service of the month at Goodnestone-09.00 and are increasingly involved in other services and events. 

In March of this year we sang Choral Evensong at Rochester Cathedral, and are already booked to sing there again as a Visiting Choir in 2019. 

If you are interested in joining the choir or would like further details then  contact Denyer Kittle-Denyer@doctors.org.uk or 01304841826 or just come along to a tuesday rehearsal.  Membership is free.
