A CHILDREN’S choir from Uganda will perform in Clarkson this Thursday.

The Zion Fellowship will host the Watoto Children’s Choir production, Signs and Wonders, from 7pm on October 12.

Watoto Child Care Ministries formed in Kampala in 1994, with eight orphans and one widow forming the initial group.

Since then it has provided residential care for more than 4000 orphaned and vulnerable children in the African city, including former child soldiers.

The choir has toured six continents since 1994 and launched the Signs and Wonders production in January.

“This production is going to challenge preconceived ideas about miracles,” creative director James Skinner said.

“The children will share stories of how their lives have been changed and how they have been called into a life of purpose to transform their communities.”

The performance will start 7pm at Zion Fellowship in Clarkson.

Call Philip Chia 0421 331 940 for details.
