Singing in our circle
Hearts full of sound
Binding us together
Strong roots reaching around.
Making a cradle
To hold you in
You're welcome to join us
The door's open; come in.
To journey together
To feel a safe place
For healing and receiving
Acceptance and grace.
~Helen Robertson, Sydney Threshold Choir
Who We Are
Sydney Threshold Choir began in December 2008. When invited, we sing quietly in groups of two or three at a bedside to provide comfort and peace. We have established relationships with Marion Aged Care Facility in Leichhardt and Neringah Hospice in Wahroonga. We also welcome requests from family and friends of people who would benefit from our service.
We participate in community events such as the Dusk Ceremony at Rookwood Cemetery, Heart Songs for Life workshops, Good Grief Café, and Living With Our Dead picnic.
In the Media
- This video was created at our November 2011 concert. The concert allowed us to introduce ourselves to the Sydney community and raise funds for our ongoing expenses.
