Walk with the Word: Exodus
Drama Kirk presents a dramatized walk, bringing to life Moses and the Israelites wandering in the desert this summer. Experience the Exodus anew, from the Red Sea to the Promised Land, on an exciting journey. You will walk with some well-known bible characters and see dramatisations of temptations, trials and miracles.
The walk is less than a mile and the event will last an hour; but does include one steep incline. It takes place on Saturday 10th August in Chatelherault Country Park at 10am, Noon and 3pm. Tickets are free and are available through event brite - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/walk-with-the-word-exodus-tickets-62504971051
We would also really appreciate some volunteer stewards to join us on the day. If you could help, please speak to Ken Graham (St Johns), Carolyn Nicolson (Cadzow) or Liz Blackman (HOPC).
