All Together Now, Skipton Baptist Church
You don’t need any singing experience whatsoever to be a part of this brand new group, which promises to bring together the community once a week to sing songs from across the decades. Whilst stepping into a room with a group of strangers to sing might seem rather nerve-wracking, leader Chris makes sure that everyone feels welcome and comfortable. The first session is free and the every session after is £5.
