Choir Camp 2017
On the weekend of Meatfare Sunday 2017, the choir went on a training camp to Mabula Game Lodge, to rehearse all the services of Great Lent and Holy Week. While they worked hard, singing for many hours, it was also very enjoyable in such a relaxing and pleasant environment, as well as a good team-building exercise.
