Edinburgh Church Hosts Scottish-German Reformation Celebration

Wednesday November 1 2017

 

Scots and Germans will join together to mark the anniversary of the Reformation at a celebration evening in an Edinburgh church on Friday evening.

The evening at St Andrew’s and St George’s West Church will include food and drink, conversation and music - some written specially for the occasion by local composer Andrew Carvel.

The event is being organised by the George Street congregation alongside the German Church in Edinburgh and the German Consulate. Singers and a speaker from Germany are taking part, thanks to the support of the Consulate, alongside the church choir and well-known local soloists.

Full tickets for the event are sold out, but music-only tickets are available at £5 from Eventbrite.

The German congregation in Edinburgh dates back to 1947, and is affiliated to the Protestant Church of Germany. It meets every other Sunday in Laudate House, Chalmers Crescent.

St Andrew’s and St George’s West have a long-established link with the German Church, which has joined them in the annual Remembrance Day service since the 1980s.

Churches around Europe have been commemorating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther posting his 95 theses to a church door in Wittenberg on October 31 1517, the event considered to mark the beginning of the Reformation in Europe.
