Become a confident Public Speaker!

Christchurch Toastmasters has been helping people develop public speaking skills for over 55 years! Established in 1965, we are the oldest Toastmasters club in Christchurch. 

Our club caters to a wide variety of people, from absolute beginners through to expert communicators. We meet every Tuesday at 7:30 sharp in the Cashmere Club (50 Colombo Street / 88 Hunter terrace).

It is 100% free to attend as a guest to see how Toastmasters works. Don’t worry will not be any pressure to speak on the first visit! Simply email us at or send a message via our Facebook Page.

Meetings have resumed!

Under Level 1 COVID Restrictions, we will continue meeting in-person every Tuesday at 7.30 pm in the Cashmere Club (50 Colombo). Guests are more than welcome to attend – just send a quick message to so that we know how many people to expect.

How Much Does it Cost?

Visit for free!

We encourage people to attend three meetings for free before making the decision to join (or not join). Every meeting is different and this will help you see how a wide variety of people have benefited from Toastmasters. 

$75 Sign Up

If you like what you see and want to join, there is an initial $75 sign up fee. This covers the cost of registering with Toastmasters and includes the first month of membership.

$20 Per Month

After the initial sign up fee, the cost is then $20 per month. This covers basic costs such as room hire and other club supplies. There are no contracts and you are free to leave the club at any time. However, we do ask that you stay for at least six months to get the maximum value from Toastmasters. 

Is this good value?

Absolutely! Toastmasters is almost entirely run by volunteers. Because of this, there is no other public speaking programme that can match the quality of Toastmasters at the same cost. If you are feeling unsure, just think of all the financial opportunities that will be created by learning how to communicate!
