United for Worship has organised what it dubs Hymn Night on Sunday at Calvary Family Church in Lilongwe.
This is a free of charge event which will give people a chance to enjoy hymn songs to the fullest.
Pastor Nico Katimba Phiri, who is the director of the group, said yesterday the Hymn Night will give people an experience and that it was all about singing hymns just as they were done in the old days involving any denomination.
“Hymns have got special treatment to any kind of experience. They all originate from real-life experiences and stories of real people. So, when one pays attention to the lyrics, you find certain hidden comfort, encouragement and worship in good times,” Katimba Phiri said.
He said this is something they will be doing quarterly, mixed with any worship cover song and some of their own songs that they have been composing as United for Worship.
“The special element is the testimony box. There will be papers where people can write the testimony of how hymns affect their lives in sorrowful and in good times,” Katimba Phiri said.
Despite the event being free of charge, Katimba Phiri, said some people have just sacrificed to put up this event for the sake of uplifting people’s spirits.
“We have gone through a lot, people have been stressed but life has to go on. If you have ever stepped in a church and enjoy hymns in the old-time way, then this is your chance to enjoy,” he said.
He said they will have a live recording of the Hymn Night.
“We will have the event on our YouTube channel, hence recording live, and then we will also have it on audio so that people can have time to listen to the hymns,” he said.
Other artists performing at the event include Mphatso Hanjahanja and Kondwani Chirwa.
