Philippa Hanna

**MORE TICKETS JUST RELEASED**

Covid-19 restrictions have been further relaxed, meaning we have now been able to release more tickets for this event.  Make sure you book fast, before they sell out!  Watch this space for further updates!


On Thursday February 10th 2022, Philippa Hanna will be performing an evening of music, celebration and testimony in Strathaven. The event is being organised by a group of local churches working together and is being hosted by Avendale & Drumclog. Philippa is one of the UK’s top Christian singer/songwriters. She has won multiple awards for her song writing and music. Her 6th studio Album entitled “Come Back Fighting” was number 1 in both the iTunes Country Chart and the UK Christian and Gospel music charts.

Over the past years Philippa has toured with Wet, Wet, Wet, Lionel Ritchie, Little Mix and many other well-known artists, sometimes performing in front of crowds of 20,000 people and more. She is a gifted songwriter and an outstanding communicator. Interspersed with her music, on February 10th she will share her faith in Jesus and real-life experience of becoming a Christian and the challenges she faced and faces in an engaging and intimate way.

Philippa will be selling and autographing her most recent album and new book at the event.

The major costs for running this event have been underwritten by a generous sponsor to make it affordable for all. It also enables all the proceeds from ticket sales to go directly towards the work of Compassion. Philippa is the first “Artist in Residence” for Compassion whose aim is to “release children from poverty in Jesus name”.

This is a ticket-only event suitable for all ages. Numbers may be restricted as a result of COVID regulations. 

The concert will be held at:

Avendale Old Parish Church
59A Kirk Street
Strathaven
South Lanarkshire

Our Service - Drumclog Memorial Kirk

                                        Drumclog

At Drumclog, the service begins at 9.30am with a warm welcome from our Minister, or the person leading the service. During the service we usually sing 2 or 3 songs/hymns. The Minister or a member of the Worship Team will usually read aloud from the Bible and lead the congregation in prayer. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. The Minister, or person leading the service, will then give a sermon that is Bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church.

The service lasts approximately 45 minutes.  Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.  After the service we serve refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) in our church hall.  This is a great way to meet people and enjoy fellowship together.  We would love to chat to you there!

At Avendale, the service begins at 11am with a warm welcome from our Minister, or the person leading the service.  Before the service begins, we will show a loop of news and notices on the screens in the church.  This is a good way to find out what's going on in the life of the church.  During the service we usually sing 3 or 4 songs/hymns, often led by our church praise band 'The Elastic Band'.  The Minister or a member of the Worship Team will usually read aloud from the Bible and lead the congregation in prayer.  This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it's all part of our connecting with God.  The Minister, or person leading the service, will then give a sermon that is Bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life.  Throughout the service, we may also show videos on the screens in the church to help us reflect on what is being shared during worship or in the sermon.  We then share news and notices, usually about what's going on in the life of the church.

The service last approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.  After the service we serve refreshments (tea, coffee and biscuits) in our church hall.  This is a great way to meet people and enjoy fellowship together.  We would love to chat to you there!

What about my kids?

At Avendale, we have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • Creche (0 months to 4 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their parent/carer at all times.
  • His Kids (5-10 years)
  • Yoof (11-18 years)

Children stay with their parent or carer at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and short Children's Talk. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the Children's Talk, someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy the first time you come along to church.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, Bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.

For more information about what happens in the children's and youth work please visit the Children's Ministry page and/or the Youth Ministry page.

N.B. - there is no children's programme or youth programme during the service at Drumclog.

Check out our Home Groups page and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a Home Group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.  If you would like us to put you in touch with a Home Group leader, please let us know via our Contact Us page.
