Choir of High Hopes

Who we are

The Choir of High Hopes was founded in 2007 by a passionate and caring team after hearing of and being inspired by the ‘Choir of Hard Knocks’. The choir exists to provide those with an interest in music and singing an outlet to explore, develop and awaken their gifts through music and song.

What we do

By developing singing skills and facilitating opportunity for social connections the choir aims to empower confidence, self-worth, self-esteem and encourage peer support; consequently enhancing social integration and inclusion.

The choir rehearse every Wednesday and enjoy lunch together afterwards. Throughout the year the choir performs at many concerts and community events.

Women's Auxiliary

The Women’s Auxiliary is a group of dedicated ladies who organise functions which fundraise for small projects around City Mission. Some functions include a stall at local markets selling plants, cards and refreshments, soup and sandwiches as well as providing card making lessons.

Overcomers

Overcomers is a group of people from all walks of life who meet in City Mission’s Chapel on Mondays to encourage and inspire each other to lose weight, gain confidence and make new friends. The support provided helps individuals develop new skills such as nutrition planning, understanding what you eat, keeping a diary, portion control and understanding the impact of stress on the body.

On arrival, they weigh in, chat about issues and encourage one another, give awards for weight loss and have short motivational talks.

Club Monday

Club Monday is comprised of a diverse group of ladies that meet each Monday morning to connect, enjoy each other’s company and provide encouragement to one another. They are a group that accept one another just as they are. Caring for those who often struggle with isolation, loneliness, confidence and various health issues.

These ladies are keen on sharing and learning new things. Activities include craft, meals, outings, hearing speakers on various topics, helping one another learn new skills and supporting each other through life’s tougher times.

Service Story

Choir of High Hopes

Thanks to the generosity of Calvary with a donation of $1,000, a trip to the North West Coast was made possible, where choir members had the privilege of performing over the ‘Choc Fest’ weekend. The donation covered, accommodation and travel expenses.

To continue the generosity show by Calvary the choir raised money at each event to give back to the community.

Latrobe Concert: $250 was donated to Latrobe Lions Club to support the Flood Relief effort.

Ulverstone Concert: $243 was donated to City Mission’s Winter Appeal.

“This event is the highlight of our year. We look forward to this as the audience are so encouraging which makes everyone happy and we all go home with a light heart. The choir members being able to spend the night in accommodation added to the joy. Thank you for helping us to be so blessed”

I joined Club Monday in 1996. I was asked to join and what a difference it has made to my life. I was a very quiet lonely lady and didn’t have any friends. Now I have learnt to speak with people and made many friends. I hope it will always continue as there is so much you can do and learn from each other.
