For the Joy of Singing the Classics 2-5pm Sunday 7th April

For the Joy of Singing the Classics is a concert series hosted by The Geelong Chorale, when choral singers get together to sing through a choir work on a Sunday afternoon with a guest conductor and accompanist.  The program is intended to give us an opportunity to sing through music that we might not otherwise get to perform. There are no auditions and there is no concert; we just have the joy of singing together for the afternoon.

Chorale provides the music and afternoon tea, and the venue is St Luke’s Uniting Church, Barrabool Road, Highton. It costs $15 per singer and $5 per listener.

On the 7th of April, Tom Healey will lead us through Orff’s Carmina Burana

We welcome singers and listeners, but anyone wanting to come MUST REGISTER with Anne Pilgrim on 0412 524 316 or pandapilgrim@gmail.com so we have enough music and afternoon tea!

Beautifully Broken Conference 30th March in Geelong

St Luke’s member Claire, a supporter of the leprosy mission, wanted to share this conference with the Congregation.

Be inspired by real and raw stories of healing from brokenness to incredible freedom, where their biggest mess, became their biggest message.

At Brave Enough’s Beautifully Broken Conference our speakers will be sharing powerful messages interwoven with vulnerable parts of their own story, because people are inspired by our victories but they connect with our weaknesses. These incredible messages are filled with hope, strength and direction, empowering others to be Brave Enough to face their challenges and emerge stronger; to help the next person up and write a positive new chapter in their story.

The Leprosy Mission’s Lisa Sturzenegger will also share stories of people affected by leprosy who have overcome adversity to find new hope in their lives.

Lisa travelled to Nepal in 2017 on a Trek to Defeat Leprosy. She visited The Leprosy Mission Anandaban Hospital and met the people you are bringing hope and healing to.
