Past event

Thanksgiving Service

To all who have lost a family member, friend or colleague, the Chaplaincy warmly invites you to a Service of Thanksgiving.

This event is for those who are grieving the past or present loss of a loved one and is open to University staff, students and members of the public, regardless of faith or philosophy of life.

The candlelit service will be an opportunity for people to pause and remember their loved one. This simple service of music and readings will offer time to reflect on what was, what is and what will be.

Numbers at this service will be restricted in line with Scottish Government Guidelines. Attendance is by reservation only, through this page.
