Tattoo Visitors from Malawi

We've been delighted to host girls from the Edinburgh Girls' High School in Malawi at our services over the past couple of weeks. They've been one of the star attractions at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, so we're really grateful that they've been able to join us for worship, fellowship and to share their musical talents in our services.

You can find out more about the school - which is supported by the Chesney Trust - here
