GaddesTones – Singing Group
The GaddesTones is a small local singing group that was formed in 2018. We meet on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm in the church. We believe that everyone has the potential to sing (despite what your teachers, families and friends might have told you) and that we can all enjoy the benefits of singing in a group. It can be uplifting when you’re feeling low or stressed, brings together people who might not otherwise meet each other. There is a wealth of evidence that singing is quite simply good for us.
We have a wonderful, patient teacher, Caroline Fitch, who creates a welcoming and informal atmosphere. There’s a lot of fun and laughter. We sing a wide range of material, including popular songs from the 60s onward and we would love to have new members joining us. The first session is free and then £5 per session or £30 for 6 sessions for those who can afford to pay in advance.
If you are interested please feel free to get in touch via email at GaddesTones@littlegaddesdenchurch.org.uk, and we are happy to call you if you would rather chat – just email your number.

Parish Communion – a Sung Eucharist with Sunday School
Our most frequent Sunday morning service follows the traditional Anglican Communion, or Eucharistic, service. We have traditional hymns and the Gloria and Responses sung to the Patrick Appleford setting of the Mass in E. The service lasts for almost an hour. Sunday School for children is held in the adjoining vestry during the service, with the children joining in at the communion.
Refreshments are served afterwards.
