PRAISE GATHERING has its origins in a choir which came together in 1985 to sing the ‘Psalms Alive’ songs, inviting singers – skilled and unskilled, but with a heart for God – to come and take part in this corporate act of Praise. The history of PG is therefore really a history of God at work in the lives of ordinary people who have experienced His love and forgiveness in their own lives, and for whom praising and worshipping with their voices is an expression of gratitude which can facilitate the joy of His presence. Over the years, many people have responded to that invitation and our last concert series in 2011 involved a choir of 400 singers drawn from 125 different churches.
The PRAISE GATHERING choir makes a welcome return to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall for two nights this June.
Over 350 voices drawn from more than 140 churches, accompanied by the PG Band, will present a varied programme of songs by Chris Tomlin and Rend Collective as well as many from the repertoire of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir.
Special guests include Jogvan Zachariassen from the Faroe Isles, Onaje Jefferson (a former soloist with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir) and Bethany Goodine from Texas.
