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 three or four at a bedside to provide comfort and peace. We have a long-term relationship with Uniting the Marion Nursing Home in Leichhardt and sing beside the bedside fortnightly as well as rehearsing there weekly. We sing at memorials for the Sydney Children's Hospital, Uniting the Marion and John Paul Village. We sing for the Wayside Chapel and also welcome requests from family and friends of people who would benefit from our service.
We create and participate in community events such as "Heart Songs for Life" workshops, "Good Grief Café" and "Dying to Know" events.
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.
- This article [PDF] was published in Inner West Courier in August 2011.
We rehearse on Wednesday evenings, meeting at 6.15 p.m. for a 6.30 p.m. start, finishing at 8.30 p.m. We rehearse at Uniting the Marion (assisted living facility), which has a Low Care (Hostel) and a High Care (Nursing Home) at 237 Marion Street, Leichhardt NSW 2045.
We welcome new members. You can also follow us on our Facebook page.
Looking forward to meeting you and singing together.
