Nelson Mandela Bay’s oldest gospel group, the Christadelphians, will be gracing the Allanridge Civic Centre and West End Community Centre stages this month.

The group was established in 1969 in Kabah Township, Uitenhage, and has been the recipient of the Metro’s Music Legends Award in 2014, travelled to Greece, Egypt and Israel and boasts 16 music albums and several DVDs of their various live performances.

Recent media reports, however, have created confusion by stating that the group’s name had changed.

Cecil Arnolds, spokesperson for the group, said that these reports are false and the group has definitely not changed its name.

Four former members of the Christadelphians Gospel Group, Chris Ressouw, Sebastian Human, Andries Phillips and Ronwyn Claassen, resigned from the group and are now singing under the name Christos Choristers.

The confusion was caused by the fact that the Christadelphians’s name has been abbreviated to Christos for many years.

According to Arnolds, the Christos Choristers was created recently and is a separate group from the Christadelphians.

Currently, the Christadelphians Gospel Group members are Danny Jacobs, Cecil Arnolds, Wimpie Arries, Welcome Tiyo, Lloyd Lean, Godfrey Murens, Kenneth Philander, Clive Booysen, Michael Grootboom, Ashley Tobias, Aljaney Seekoei and Keenan Seekoei.

They are looking forward to seeing their fans at the shows.

“These shows are not to be missed, as an exciting programme is being prepared for our fans,” said Arnolds.

The show at the Allanridge Civic Centre in Uitenhage will take place on June 24 at 7pm, while the show at the West End Community Centre in Port Elizabeth will take place on June 25 at 3pm.

Tickets are available from Danny Jacobs on 084 246 1281.
