The Highland Male Voice Gospel Choir will be performing some well-known hymns in our Kirk – and there will be a chance for the audience to stretch their vocal chords too. Entry is free, and includes tea and biscuits. There will be an opportunity to donate to the “Access for the Future” project which is our efforts to improve the disabled access to our building and make other improvements to the Church Hall. We’re removing the false ceiling for this event, which will open up the rarely-seen upper pews and will seriously enhance the acoustics for what should be an inspirational evening of music.
Performance starts at 7.30 pm Free entry but donations to our project are invited
