<lst>Brambleton Presbyterian Church will host its second annual "U2charist" — a worship service featuring the music of rock group, U2, performed live by the church’s worship band — on Saturday, June 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of Broad Run High School in Ashburn.

This special worship event is designed to raise awareness, compassion, and resources for the World Vision Senzani Vulnerable Children’s Project in Malawi, Africa that seeks to provide food, education, and health care to orphaned and vulnerable children.

Brambleton Presbyterian is in partnership with World Vision, a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to tackling the causes of extreme poverty and injustice. The cost for this project for 2009 is $156,133 and our goal from this event is to raise $7,000 to help the effort.

There is no charge for admission, but donations will be gladly accepted in care of Brambleton Presbyterian Church to benefit the World Vision Senzani Vulnerable Children’s Project

Brambleton Presbyterian Church is a new church development located in the Brambleton community in Ashburn.
