Special Service To Remember Queen Elizabeth II To Be Held In Dumfries

A Dumfries church is to stage a special Christmas Carol Service to remember the late Queen. ‘A Service of Carols for Advent in Remembrance of Queen Elizabeth II’ will take place at St. John’s Church, Lovers Walk, Dumfries.

The event is being organised by Annan teacher, Jamie Brand, who received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for his Services to Music and Education. Jamie said: “The aim is to remember our late Queen. She loved music and this will be a fitting tribute to a woman who gave seventy years of service to the nation.”

The St. John’s Church Choir is one of the oldest choirs in the south-west of Scotland, having been established in the 1860′s. It is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music. In addition to the regular services at St. John’s Church (Sung Eucharist and Evensong), members sing at weddings and concerts, and at the now traditional Christmas Eve Festival of Carols at the Crichton Memorial Church. The organist is John Turner.

Members of the public are welcome to attend and among those present will be Councillor Linda Dorward, Depute Convener of Dumfries and Galloway Council, and the Lord Lieutenant of Dumfries, Fiona Armstrong.

The Service starts at 6pm on Sunday, 4 December 2022.
