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. Tickets are FREE and are available at Sunday services or in the Church Centre. An offering will be taken on the evening of the concert for the Watoto choir.
Mark this date in your diary and get your tickets soon before they sell out – this is an evening not to be missed!
Are you free on Saturday 6th June? Would you be able to help out your local community?
Kirkliston Primary School wants to upgrade their playground to provide more play facilities for the children. Their plan is to have a Loch Ness Monster in the playground, made out of car tyres! The other feature that they would love to have is a horse-shoe made out of car tyres where the children can sit or step on and which could be used by teachers with their class for summer classes outside or for keep fit activities.
The tyres have been delivered to the school but what is really needed is some help to do some digging to help to get these features in place. Some parents will be on hand to assist and some of the boys from our Boys’ Brigade will be there to flex their muscles.
Can anyone lend any tools (spades, wheelbarrows, etc) or some support on the day? Many hands make light work when digging holes….
If you are able to help, please come along to Kirkliston Primary School on the morning of Saturday 6th June – your support for this community initiative would be much appreciated.
