Christchurch Toastmasters has been helping people develop public speaking skills for over 50 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). All are welcome to attend!


With New Zealand raising its COVID-19 alert level and heading towards a complete lock-down, all our Toastmasters meetings have been temporarily suspended. Our committee is currently deciding how best to handle this situation and will be providing more information to members in due course. This is a sad day in the club’s proud 55 year history, but we acknowledge that the same things that make Toastmasters great – the friendships, community and social interactions, also create health risks in this new global environment.

Take care over the coming weeks and be sure to stay digitally connected with each other. These are challenging times, but we will get through them together and return stronger.
