Christian World Service invites you to hear great music from 10 am Saturday, 9 August and culminating with a service at 10 am Sunday, 10 August.
St John’s in the City and St Andrew’s on the Terrace are organising a huge 24 hour concert at St John’s in the City on the corner of Willis and Dixon Streets. They will play continuous music – choral, instrumental, organ, Gilbert and Sullivan, Madagascan folk, and more. The organisers are seeking an audience and sponsors. All are welcome.
They are aiming to raise $5,000 to help Palestinians in the West Bank get safe and sufficient water. Many families struggle to buy the water they need. Helping them install water tanks or expanding a village’s water supply system makes their right to water a reality.“The organisers of this Musicathon have put in a tremendous effort. Some great music is planned and Christian World Service appreciates their determination to help the people of Palestine. If you have some time, please join them at St John’s and help them reach their goal,” says Pauline McKay, National Director.
Christian World Service partner the Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees is working through the labyrinth of Israeli water restrictions to help people get the water they need. Last year they extended the water system to 27 new households in Burkin – now 85% of the community has affordable and accessible water. DSPR also installed 1500m of transmission pipes to Mazare’ Al Nubani and Arua villages.
