Brief history: Carol Shortis, song leader of Kāpiti Community Choir & previously Gale Force Gospel, ran some workshops in Paekakariki from 2012 with their first performance at the Sustainable Homes Show. 

Shona McNeil took over in May 2014. The choir moved to various locations in Paraparaumu in 2020 and to our current venue in 2021.

Join us. We follow the inclusive teaching style of Tony Backhouse, learning everything by ear with lots of fun repetition.  Our repertoire includes African American gospel songs, Taize chants and other world songs.

No auditions, no reading music
