******* Santhia Classes *******

With Guru Ji's kirpa we had our first taster session of Learn Gurmukhi and Gurbani Paath Santhiya on Friday 28th February 2014 at SGSSH.


We have had 41 students enrol on the basic / beginners class to learn Gurmukhi (Punjabi) in 3 months with a wide mix of students from 62 years to 6 years in age - it is a chance to enrich ourselves with our mother tongue and then to progress to learning and understanding Guru Ji's teachings.


32 students enrolled for the Gurbani Paath Santhiya Foundation course


Admission is open for another 2 weeks or so - please feel free to come along (with others) to the next session this Friday in the library / registry room at SGSSH

7pm to 8pm (beginners / basic) and 8pm to 9pm (foundation level)


We also have Gatka classes on Friday evenings from 6.30pm to 8.30pm which are open to all - these take place in the Mata Sahib Kaur Hall


******* Gatka & Vichaar Sessions *******

Every Friday night


Gatka for children of all ages.

This is a fun way to learn our Sikhi art - children and adults all welcome.

Once the skills are mastered the team have the opportunity to participate in the annual Yudh tournament.

7.30pm Vichaar session

A great opportunity for everyone to get together and discuss a topic that is relevant and meaningful.

After Vichaar its Chips and Beans evening (and sometimes fabulous home made cakes too).

A time for everyone to chillax and enjoy some social time together building our Sikh youth community

Khalsa Roots is a youth club for children of all ages which runs fun filled sessions every fortnight on a Saturday at 3pm to 5.30 pm. Each session involves children learning about Sikhi and their Sikh Roots followed by a practical session and then an hour of sports, free play and child led interactions. Children are encouraged to participate fully rather than being spoon fed and have opportunities to develop other skills such as presenting, I.T. and to mix with other sikh  children like themselves which they may not otherwise have the opportunity to do. We also have regular fun activities which have included cooking lessons, horse riding, trip to a theme park, introduction to yoga and sikh musical instruments and participating in Sikh Environment Day.  There are a whole lot more new opportunities coming to widen the children's experiences.

Gift Aid Donations

E-mail Print PDF

Gift Aid increases the value of donations to the Gurdwara. For example if you give a £10 donation, using Gift Aid this becomes worth £12.50.  (For donations between 6 April 2008 and 5 April 2011 the Gurdwara will also get a separate government supplement of three pence on every pound you have given).

Periodically a Gift Aid claim is put into the HMRC to reclaim the tax which has been paid by the individual donors. In order to make a Gift Aid donation you need to make a Gift Aid declaration

Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara Hitchin is a registered Charity and this additional income will help contribute towards any one of the following activities:

  • Keertan / Parchaar
  • Youth Activity - including Sikhi Camps ,Gatka, Sikhi Classes and Punjabi School
  • Building Fund
  • Langar

The golak is another opportunity for the Gurdwara to increase its reclaim of tax, over the past few years the average annual golak income has been around £45K, which means the Gurdwara is potentially missing out on £12,500 annually in gift aid.  Gift Aid envelopes in the lobby and next to the golak should be used where possible by completing a few simple details and placing the donations in the golak to identify the individual donors.

For any queries regarding gift aid please see one of the management committee.  Many thanks for your on going support.
