“Psalms for All Seasons” day at Greyfriars Kirk

Psalms-YELLOW

 

Psalms are the bedrock of Jewish and Christian song and are deep expressions of joy and sadness. They reflect the highs and lows of the human condition, our search for relationship with God and for ways to live well in the world. Psalms For All Seasons is a day designed to explore the wide variety of ways in which the Psalms have been set to music and to give inspiration for introducing exciting new material into worship in your church.

The day will be headlined by Martin Tel, Director of Music at Princeton Seminary and the driving force behind the exciting publication, Psalms For All Seasons, along with John Bell, the hugely talented and experienced leader of the Wild Goose Resource Group.  Making their Scottish debut will be the creative Dutch musicians of the nine-piece “The Psalm Project” who will show how they have reworked the Genevan Psalter for worship bands.

To register for the day, please email festival@greyfriarskirk.com or call Martin Ritchie on 0131 225 1900. Tickets are £10 (£5 for students).

Watoto Children’s Choir this Sunday at Kirkliston!

watoto

Watoto Children’s Choir is a group of African children’s choirs based in Kampala, Uganda, at Watoto Church (formerly Kampala Pentecostal Church or KPC). Each choir is composed of about twenty-two children from Uganda.

Watoto means “Children” in Swahili language. The choir is made up of children who have lost one or both parents to the AIDS epidemic or to war. The choir has toured throughout the world accompanied by a team of Ugandan adults.

Their performances are a blend of traditional hymns, native African rhythms, contemporary gospel music and dance. They have released several albums including Mambo Sawa, Beautiful Africa and the new Oh, What Love album. Their unique ministry also comprises Watoto Child Care Ministries, three babies’ homes, three primary schools, a high school and a vocational school.

The all-new production, “Oh, What Love”, by the Watoto Children’s Choir, presents the vitality of the new Africa.  Its vibrancy, urban sound and colour takes you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration as the children share their stories.

Watoto brings you the triumphant story of children who were once orphans.  Through worship music, they share their journeys with us.  We are delighted to have the Watoto Children’s Choir from Kampala in Uganda with us for a special performance on

Sunday 21st June at 7.30pm in Kirkliston Parish Church.  

Tickets are FREE and are available at Sunday services, in the Church Centre or by emailing watotoconcert@gmail.com.  An offering will be taken on the evening of the concert for the Watoto choir.

Imagine a new Africa.  Reborn, revived, rebuilt.  The all-new production, “Oh What Love”, by the Watoto Children’s Choir, presents the vitality of the new Africa.  Its vibrancy, urban sound and colour takes you on an emotional journey from utter despair to joyous celebration as the children share their stories.

Since 1994, Watoto children’s choirs have travelled all over the world sharing the plight of Africa’s orphaned and vulnerable, making an appeal to help raise these children so that they can rebuild their nation.  Each of the children in the choir has suffered the loss of one or both of their parents and they have been rescued and now live in a Watoto village.   Watoto brings you the triumphant story of children who were once orphans.  Through worship music, they share their journeys with us.  We are delighted to have the Watoto Children’s Choir from Kampala in Uganda with us for a special performance on

Sunday 21st June at 7.30pm in Kirkliston Parish Church.
