Welcome the Watoto Childrens Choir from Kampala, Uganda, Africa.
In January 2017 Watoto launched a new production that celebrates the joy of salvation. The choir, whose members are orphans and other vulnerable children, will present new worship music from Watoto Church in Uganda and invite audiences to expect an encounter with God. Through the power of their testimonies the children will share stories of how their lives have been changed, and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities. Each story will declare the miracle of transformation – from darkness to light; from despair to hope; from loss to purpose; from fear to faith.
Audiences will be given the opportunity to respond by partnering with Watoto Church to rescue vulnerable women and children in Africa, raise them up as leaders, so they can rebuild their nation. Through song, dance and stories the children will proclaim the good news of the salvation that is available for all.
Thank you to all who joined us for our journey through Lent, Holy Week and Easter 2017.
