Celebrating the bicentenary
of the birth of Dr David Livingstone

19 March 2013 marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of David Livingstone. This explorer, writer, missionary, medic and anti-slavery campaigner rose from humble beginnings in a Lanarkshire tenement to become celebrated as “Africa’s first freedom fighter.” Join us in rediscovering a man whose life and legacy has spanned continents.


Bicentenary Service - Hamilton United Reformed Church

Hamilton United Reformed Church is the successor to St. James' Congregational Church which David Livingstone and his family attended at the time of his application to the London Missionary Society.

They are holding a Bicentenary Service on the anniversary of Livingstone's birth on 19th March 2013 at 7:30 p.m.

As the building is not particularly large we request that those wishing to attend apply for free tickets, to guarantee a seat at the service.

Please apply through the Church website - details on the David Livingstone pages.
