We will be hosting “Return to Light”, a Highland civic service marking the Centenary of the Armistice, which ended the First World War. Everyone is invited to join us at the Old High Church on Saturday 10 November at 3.30pm.

A memorial candle, which was lit at the Old High in 2014 and has been burning since in Inverness Cathedral, will be will be taken in procession from Inverness Cathedral and returned to the Old High Church to mark the end of the hostilities of the First World War. The processions leaves the Cathedral at 3pm, for the Old High service at 3.30pm.

Members of the public are invited to come and view or follow the parade and/or to attend the Old High Church service.

The Saturday afternoon prior to Armistice Day was chosen for this event so that anyone can attend both the Highland-wide commemoration and their local remembrance services the following day. More information on the Highland Council website.

You are also most welcome to join us for our Remembrance Sunday services on 11 November- 10am and St Stephen’s and 11.15 at the Old High Church.

Also, the Old High Church will be open on 7, 8 and 9 November from 10am-12 noon and from 2-4pm. During these three days visitors can view the Queens’ Own Cameron Highlanders Memorial area within the church, and also see a display illustrating life in Inverness during World War 1.
