Corner Kids Performing Arts

Due to COVID restrictions, please contact Carolyn prior to visiting for the first time.

All kids have opportunities through drama, music, dance and other expressive arts to explore personal development, friendship, leadership and faith.

This group doesn’t highlight individuals’ talents, but instead focuses on working together as a collective to create fun and interactive performances. When mistakes are made the group must improvise to support each other and keep the intended meaning of the story on track. This is a great life skill to learn.

Kids can be involved in skits/events throughout the year and a full Musical Christmas Production, including performances at local primary schools (T.B.C.).

When: Tuesdays 3.45pm – 5.15pm (during school term)

Cost: $8 per session OR $70 per term (includes a light tea).
Sponsorship may be available for low income families.

Each year an Art Display of all students work is hung creating a real sense of achievement and pride. Several pieces have been sold at each exhibition and the community also enjoys viewing their work.

Community Club @ The Corner

Please note that Community Club is on hold until further notice due to the virus pandemic.
We look forward to welcoming you back when life returns to normal.

When: 7.30pm for 7.45pm start Tuesday (second of the month)

The Community Club @ The Corner was formerly known as the Greenfield Road Community Club (a sponsored outreach of the Seacombe Uniting Church).

The club was founded in 1996, when some Seacombe members realised, prayerfully, that a mixed social group was needed at the church. This dedicated group worked hard in developing a concept, which would include the wider community in the area, while still observing principles through example. The Club is thankful for their vision, because we have continued to enjoy the meetings, each other’s company and our innovative suppers. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month.

Right from the outset, we have been registered with the Marion Council as a meeting place for people looking to mix with others in their area. It has always been the aim that the committee deals with the day-to-day business, BUT are always very open to suggestions — which do thankfully keep coming. If a donation to a cause is appropriate, we give as generously as we can, from our meeting by meeting gold coin donations.

Meetings are open to ourselves, friends and neighbours without obligation to attend regularly.

Next Date: On hold until further notice
