TCCV Choir

The Tamil Christian Congregation Choir is an enthusiastic and vibrant group of individuals who love to sing, play musical instruments to praise and worship God.  Since the inception of the TCCV, the choir has grown and blossomed, through all the changing scenes of life. 

The late Mrs Rathie Selvaratnam started the TCCV choir ministry.  She helped it grow steadily, encouraging others to take part, helping numerous others to find their inner singing talents and, teaching many to confidently play various instruments.

The choir ministry has been blessed to have had the leadership of the late Mrs Selvaratnam, late Mrs Vasantha Wilson and Mrs Rochie Thavabalachandran over the years.  They have each nourished and guided the choristers and the musicians in their own way to bring them to the choir’s current high standard and deep commitment.

The choir participates in both English and Tamil singing for our once a month family services.  The choristers’ and the leaders’ strong commitment is truly evident when they prepare for the Carol Service and Easter Service every year. The choir gathers third friday of every month around 8pm for a Sing-a-long session (which usually goes up to 9:30pm), where we recollect old songs and learn new songs which would possibly sung at the Sunday services. Choristers take turns in facilitating the session with an opportunity to introduce couple of songs of their choice.

We would love young people to come forward and take part in the choir ministry.  If you would like to sing or play an instrument, we would love to hear from you!
