NEW YEAR MIDNIGHT SERVICE

A watch-night worship is held at midnight between 31 December and 1 January, marking the beginning of the Church year. Advent of the New Year is announced to the congregation with a “Fanfare” sounded on bugles, by Pakistan Rangers’ buglers. “Fanfare” is a tune played exclusively to welcome kings and heads of states.

Pakistan Rangers are cooperating with St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church since 31 December 1999 at the change of the millennium, when their buglers first performed in the watch-night service. This activity has become a tradition and is looked forward to by numerous Christians in Lahore.

The buglers are arranged by Lt Col Ernest Shams who also preaches during the midnight service.
