European Christmas Carol Service

Wednesday 5 December 2018 18:00-19:00

The Institut français d’Ecosse lends its support to the European Commission in Scotland by sharing with you an invitation to a Christmas Carol Service that they have so graciously organised:

We are pleased to invite you, on 5 December 2018, to a European Christmas Carol Service at the Church of St. John on Princes Street, to mark the 200th anniversary of "Silent Night".

We are indebted to Rev. Markus Dünzkofer for kindly agreeing to host a Carol Service at the St. John’s Church.

We are honoured to be joined by the Minister for Europe, Migration and International Development, Ben Macpherson MSP.

The evening will showcase popular carols and Christmas traditions from right around Europe. The carols will be sung in their original language.

Finger food from diverse European countries will then be available to try.

Come along with your friends and family — everyone is welcomed!
