The Cleveland Uniting (formerly Methodist) Church Choir was formed early in the life of the church. Records show that the trustees asked the choir to sing at an anniversary church service in 1920.

While primarily for worship, the choir has taken part in community events such as the Anzac day commemoration services and joined with other choirs for Handel’s oratorio ‘Messiah’. They also sang at Seniors Week, at St John’s Cathedral Brisbane supporting Leukaemia Week and with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra at a Christmas concert.

Since 2002 the choir has led the singing at the annual ecumenical carol services held in the church grounds, interacting with the Catholic, Lutheran and Anglican churches. Pleasant Sunday afternoon concerts, to which the general community is invited, are always very popular.


The choir sings at the 8.00 am service and the repertoire is a mix of traditional anthems and contemporary choral compositions.  There is a great friendship among the members who find joy and blessing in using their vocal talents in worship. New members are always welcome at practice at 4.30 pm on Thursday afternoons. Previous choral experience is desirable but not essential, but it is an advantage if you can read music.

Over recent years the choir has been conducted by Rhelma Morton and accompanied by Peter Crane on either the church’s beautifully restored pipe organ or the piano.  Peter has been organist/pianist at Cleveland Uniting for over 25 years, is vitally involved in the musical life of the Redlands. He is a music co-convenor with the Redlands Eisteddfod, which is in its 22nd year of Encouraging Today’s Youth.
