Turn music into water

Celebrate World Water Day with the Belfast Community Gospel Choir and Olympic Medalist Richard Chambers on Saturday, March 22 at 7.30pm in Shankill Parish Church.

Richard and his brother Peter travelled to Uganda with Tearfund where they met Doreen (13) and her sister Jouvllet (11).

Every day these girls face a gruelling walk up a 3km mountain carrying 20 litres of water. Tearfund challenged the Team GB Rowers to do the same and they were completely wiped out by the challenge. Richard described it as the hardest training session he had ever done.

Led by their charismatic Director, Marie Lacey, Belfast Community Gospel Choir is one of Northern Ireland’s most sought-after musical groups. The Choir has performed for the Queen, at the Titanic opening, as well as at scores of festivals, weddings and charitable events.

During the concert, Marie Lacey, local journalist Will Leitch and Richard Chambers will share inspiring stories of the remarkable change they saw in the lives of people who were able to access clean water for the first time.

The concert marks World Water Day and the proceeds from it will go to help hundreds of people access clean water around the world.

Tickets, priced £12 Adult / £10 OAP and Youth, are available from the Faith Mission Bookshops in Portadown, Lurgan and Banbridge or online via Eventbrite.
