The Seven Incorporated Trades Service celebrates our historic links with the tradesmen of the City.
You are invited to join us for this year’s Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen Service to celebrate the relationship the University has with this important organisation.
The relationship between the Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen and the University dates back to the 1500s and was largely established through Rev Dr William Guild who graduated from Marischal College at the age of 22. He went on to become the Parish Minister at the City Kirk of Aberdeen in 1631 and subsequently became Principal to the University of Aberdeen in 1640.
These links are just as important today and members of the Seven Incorporated Trades include leaders from the City and influential supporters of the University. Representatives of the Seven Incorporated Trades attend our graduation ceremonies and support the work of the University in many varied ways.
The service will be conducted by Rev Marylee Anderson, Chaplain to the University and we will also welcome as our guest preacher Rev Mark Rodgers, Head of Spiritual Care, NHS Grampian.
There will be a sandwich lunch reception to follow in James MacKay Hall. All are welcome.
Admission is free, no booking required.
Guests to be seated by 10.50am.
