On Wednesday, 2 December, the University hosted the annual Alumni Carol Service for local alumni at St Salvator’s Chapel.
The service was led by the University Chaplain, Revd Dr Donald MacEwan, with opening prayers by the Very Revd Dr Ian C Bradley (BD 1989), Principal of St Mary’s College and Honorary Church of Scotland Chaplain, and the sermon by Revd Dr Alasdair Coles (BSc 1990), Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Honorary Church of Scotland Chaplain,
Readings were by Miss Sarah Thompson (MA 2014) President of the Athletic Union; Mr Peter Haselhurst (MA1972) President of the After Many Days Club; Miss Emma Shea (MA 2000) Deputy Director of Corporate Communications; and Professor Gary Taylor, Deputy Principal and Master of the United College.
University Organist, Mr Tom Wilkinson and The St Andrews Renaissance Singers led the packed chapel in song throughout the evening in what was a lovely celebration of the Christmas season. Many attended the mulled wine and mince pie reception which followed where Professor Gary Taylor thanked alumni for their continued loyalty and support.
