The People’s Christian Fellowship Choir
The PCF Choir is a group of vibrant singers and musicians who share their faith in God through music and song. Their music style ranges from traditional gospel, gospel praise and worship, through to inspirational and gospel rock. The PCF Choir’s music appeals to a wide ranging audience. However, its emphasis is on the positive message of God’s love and their personal relationship with Jesus. What makes the PCF choir unique, is its audiences varying ages and backgrounds.
The choir was founded in 1991 and consisted of the youth who attended the local church at that time. Influences during those early years included The London Community Gospel Choir, James Cleveland, John P. Kee, Ricky Dillard, Mattie Moss-Clarke and many of America’s leading gospel choirs. Over the years, the singers have worked together and developed their vocal ability to a professional standard. A number of the choir’s singers today, consist of the choir’s founding singers. This is a rarity in today’s music industry and this has contributed to the blend and overall sound of the choir. The technical ability of the singers is second to none. Many of the singers are session singers in their own right, including members of UK Gospel Soul group – V9 Collective, who won a Gospel Music Award in 2010 and were nominated for a MOBO award in 2012 for Best Gospel Group. Still, there are others who are regularly requested to sing in other groups.
Members of the choir regularly sing in the worship ministry here at The People’s Christian Fellowship and the choir is often invited to attend concerts, conferences and sing at external events. Requests have been received from as far as Eastern Europe. In 2013, the choir featured in the BBC’s first ever gospel proms held at the Royal Albert hall.
Praise Comes First
Any organisation or group must have objectives and goals and seek to continually work towards meeting them. One of the choir’s objectives was to perform a live recording that would culminate into a CD. This was attained in September 2002 and was a phenomenal event of praise and worship being expressed in one of the most vibrant and exciting evenings experienced by all. The evening, “Praise Comes First”, was headlined by The PCF Choir and all of the songs (all original material) have been used for the CD recording – such was the output quality.
The choir’s director, Pastor David Daniel, led the singers through the concert in a unique way, such that those who attended the live recording, were compelled to purchase their own copy of the CD that same night! Speaking after the live recording, Pastor David Daniel said “everyone… the singers, musicians, admin team and even the cooks worked very hard to make sure this evening would be successful and wow! What an evening it has been; for the first time I’m speechless! Praise God.”
Great Is The Lord
The choir has gone on to record a fantastic second live album recorded at the Dominion Church in North London. This new album entitled Great Is The Lord is due to be released on the 1st July 2017. The first single from the album is entitled JESUS and is now available on iTunes. The single, Jesus, written by Ruth Waldron and produced by Nathaniel Ledwidge and Wesley Muoria-Chaves, is a joyful proclamation of the lordship of Jesus.
Great Is The Lord features songs that encompass a wide range of gospel styles and flows.
Pastor David Daniel said “The choir is very excited about the forthcoming release of Jesus, the debut single from our second album project Great Is The Lord. We believe that we’ve recorded an album which contains songs that will minister life, faith and inspiration to listeners, no matter what their faith level is. The songs on Great Is The Lord really focus on exalting and talking about the things He’s done that are great. We hope that those who get a chance to hear it will feel the same way.

The singers work with a team of dedicated musicians who are innovative in their creativity and professional in their approach towards music.
They, along with the choir directors and singers, work to bring a unique, universal sound which captivates listeners and draws them to a knowledge of Christ.
The PCF Choir seeks to personally build their relationship with God and it is that relationship that is portrayed through this ministry.
The PCF Choir is backed by the leadership of The People’s Christian Fellowship, which is a church whose mission is to “Spread the gospel through serving our community and strengthening the body of Christ, by developing gifting’s and providing opportunities for ministry.”
