Gale Force Gospel meets in the hall at the back of St Andrews on the Terrace at 68pm on Mondays during school terms. Term 4 starts on 18 October.

We also run a Zoom session of these rehearsals so that members who are unwell or unable to get to choir that night can still sit in on rehearsals remotely. A link to join via Zoom is available for members only (check the weekly email).

Membership Subscription

There is an annual membership fee to cover costs of running the choir. You can also pay each term if you prefer. Please pay by the second Monday of the term. There is less admin for us if you pay by online banking, and we offer a small discount for this.

  • $320 per year, if payment made online (saving $20!)

  • $85 per term, if payment made online

  • $90 per term, if paying by cash at our Welcome Desk.

It is much easier for us to receive online payments, so please do pay online if you possibly can.
