Tony Campolo, former spiritual advisor to Bill Clinton, and song writing legend Graham Kendrick, visit St Patrick’s Parish, Coleraine, on November 2.
They are taking part in an evening of worship and challenge which offers an opportunity to learn more about the work of Compassion.
For more than 60 years, Compassion UK has been giving, working with some of the poorest children in the world. Through child sponsorship, children are connected with someone who cares and has made the decision to be there for them. Today they are transforming the lives of over 1.5 million children, teaching them that they can have a hope and a future.
Tony Campolo is a renowned sociologist, pastor and social justice campaigner and is the former spiritual advisor to President Bill Clinton. Graham Kendrick is seen by many as the ‘father of modern worship music’ and has contributed hundreds of songs to the church.
The rector of St Patrick’s, the Rev Roger Cooke, said: “It’s a rare treat to get two leaders like this in one place. We are delighted to welcome Graham and Tony, and look forward to an evening to remember!”
The concert gets underway at 7.30pm and tickets at £12 are available from www.compassionuk.org
