Invitation to Founders’ Day


Sunday 8 February 2015


11am, King’s College Chapel, University of Aberdeen


I warmly invite you to attend this important commemorative occasion.  On Founders’ Day we pay tribute to our historic origins as an ancient university and we light a candle to give thanks for the vision of Bishop Elphinstone and our patron fathers. Please make a note of it in your diaries. The Service will be held in King’s College Chapel on Sunday 8 February 2015 at 11am.  The Service will be conducted by Rev David Hutchinson, Assistant Chaplain to the University, with a message of goodwill from distinguished guest preacher Right Reverend John Chalmers, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. 

There will be a reception to follow in Linklater Rooms, University of Aberdeen.

Those joining the academic procession are requested to assemble in the James Mackay Hall within the King’s College Conference Centre by 10.30am. 

Those who wish to process are requested to complete the RSVP below and return it to Lia O’Neil, Events Office, University Office, King’s College, as soon as possible and by Friday 31 January.

Professor Sir Ian Diamond
