On the 19th of May, Wellington Cathedral of St Paul is hosting a Tearfund event with the Mwangaza children’s choir. “We’re really excited by this, and are keen to publicise this widely throughout the diocese,” says Richard Apperley, the Cathedral’s Assistant Music Director. The event will be raising money for Tearfund’s work. The choir will also be performing in Palmerston North on the 18th of May, and in Lower Hutt and Porirua on the 20th of May – visit the website for more information.
The Mwangaza Children’s Choir (pronounced m-wahn-GAH-zah) is an inspiring group of talented children aged 8-12 who are dedicated to sharing the Gospel of hope through song, dance and their testimonies. The choir based in Gaba, Uganda, was established in 2004 as a ministry outreach of Africa Renewal Ministries (ARM). They have extensively toured the USA, Holland and Germany, and are now coming to Australasia in 2018.
Through traditional African worship songs and dance they raise awareness and support for the churches, schools, medical clinics and orphanages ARM establishes throughout Uganda. As Tearfund ambassadors, the choir also promotes our Child Sponsorship Programme. It’s all about shining the light of Jesus throughout Uganda and the world!
