Watchnight Over Glasgow

This atmospheric event is now well established as a Hogmanay feature, combining vigorous praise with meditative words and music.

There is meaningful spiritual challenge to the year ahead, and there will be the opportunity for those to attend to convey their prayers asking forgiveness for the past and expressing hope for new fortitude in the future.

There will be an interview with Robert Donald of Glasgow City Mission, who is the organiser of the Night Shelter currently operating seven nights a week  for people who have nowhere else to sleep. Half of the offering taken on the night will be given to this project.

The event also features Soundbite with Ramsay Shields and soloist Marjorie Fullarton.

Parking provision at the Cathedral is good. Leave Castle Street by the narrow road at the traffic lights between the Royal Infirmary and Cathedral Square then turn right near the Cathedral to park in the Square.

The event is sponsored by Hope Alba.
