Kildary Kroakers – 10th December

All singers are warmly invited to join the Kildary Kroakers for a fun ‘from scratch’ performance of Roger Jones’s popular musical While Shepherds Watched.

The rehearsal will run from 2.30-4.30pm on Saturday 10th December in Logie Church. There will be no auditions and both words and music copies will be available to borrow for the day. After a break, the performance will start at 6pm and will be followed by light refreshments, so even if you don’t sing, you can come and enjoy the music and fellowship.

There will be a retiring collection, to be shared by Christian Music Ministries and Kilmuir & Logie Easter Church of Scotland. 

We would be pleased to see anybody who would be interested in joining us for this performance.

Bikes for Ekwendeni Hospital

Tarbat Church of Scotland and Fearn Abbey & Nigg have  raised a total of £1520 for Vwira mental health volunteers in Malawi to buy bicycles so they could reach their patients.

Barbara Mangwazu , project co-ordinator, wrote:

“I am writing to say thanks to people at your church for supporting us with means of transport which has one of our biggest challenge for years. You have made our work much easier.

Attached are photos of some bicycles being delivered to a group of Vwira health  volunteers whose faces are full of joy and happiness.

God bless, Barbara”

All will be welcome at this concert, where the band will take us on a journey –
from hymns to jazz;
from classical to pop
and everything in between.
It will be a great evening.

 

Ekwendeni visitors

Our visitors from Ekwendeni hospital brought glorious sunshine with them, but alas, it has not lasted. However we are enjoying each other’s company and getting to know a lot more about Ekwendeni and Malawi.
