Amazing Love concert for MAF

A charity which flies all over the world helping those in need is touching down for a charity concert in Bearsden.

MAF – Mission Aviation Fellowship – is a Christian agency whose mission is to fly light aircraft in developing countries so that people in remote areas can receive the help they need and that need is huge.

Every three minutes, a MAF plane will be taking off or touching down somewhere in the world. It’s helping the sick or injured and providing access to education for millions of people.

MAF pilots and personnel deliver relief workers, doctors, pastors, school books, food, medicines – everything that can only be safely and speedily delivered by air. On a daily basis, they reach the unreachable, bringing hope and much needed relief to isolated communities.

The Ebola outbreak has only added to the urgency of their mission.

Bearsden Baptist Church is hosting a concert – The Amazing Love Tour - with Clive Parnell and his band at 7.30pm on Saturday, December 6 in aid of this charity.

Clive Parnell is a singer/ songwriter based in Edinburgh. Having sang with “Indigoecho” and the “Mystery Tent”, his recent solo album – Amazing Love – has been receiving critical acclaim, with a 10/10 review calling it ‘‘first class’’ and ready to stand the test of time.

Band members include Graeme Duffin, Brian Macleod, Yvonne Lyon, David Lyon and Iain Wintour and supported by Megan MacPhee.

Tickets cost £5 and can be purchased through VirginGiving: where you can also donate to MAF if you so wish. Tickets will also be available at the door.

Clive Parnell, an accomplished Christian singer-songwriter, is partnering with MAF to offer a unique experience to churches and groups around the country.

Throughout 2014 and 2015, you can book Clive to perform a concert at your own church. It’s an opportunity to bless your congregation and reach out in the local community.
