A concert of praise and worship in the stunning surroundings of one of Scotland's most beautiful churches, led by the Origin Scotland Orchestra and Choir.
Symphonic Praise seeks to restore the great hymns to the worship of the Church, in so doing teaching good theology, and deepening worship and encounter with God. Through the teaching and singing of hymns and songs with great doctrine we build resilience into our faith in a world that rejects many of the things for which Christians stand.
Tickets will be available nearer the time. Tickets are free, optional suggested donation at time of booking.
