ALL ABOUT US ...
If you're looking for emotional uplift or just want to sing soulful songs with a bunch of friendly people, come along to enjoy some warm companionship in our supportive singing group.
We learn a wide range of songs by ear - and you don't need any prior musical knowledge or experience of singing in choir.
Please make your way to the little blue door round the side of the building. We have a small car park at the Church and roadside parking alongside, including disabled bays if you need them. There's no fee as our little Wellbeing Choir is grant-funded.
If health or mobility is a problem, please let us know and we'll see what we can do to help. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or give Jacky a call on 07708 237415.
The D'Vine Singers are a friendly, informal group who meet to sing for fun, with a strong focus on mental wellbeing. We take our name from the Vine Baptist Church in Sevenoaks, where we meet from 12.00-1.30 pm on Fridays. The group began life as part of a funded research study into singing and mental health. When the project came to an end, with the value of singing getting a definite ‘thumbs up’, we were keen to carry on as an independent group and here we are today, still going strong after many happy years of mutual support. To read more about the initial research, please go to the Research section.
Despite the cold weather, we were able to give a warm welcome to Sevenoaks Mayor, Rachel and consort Richard Parry, along with Louise from IMAGO, when they join us to help celebrate our 8th birthday in October 2022.
OUT AND ABOUT
Although we mainly sing for fun, we do enjoy getting out and about in the community from time to time and hold an annual concert to raise funds. There's no pressure to take part but lots of people find they get a 'buzz' from these occasions. We often sing with other choirs, like Eden Songsters, seen here with us in 2018.
