American Thanksgiving Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral


One of the highlights of the year is our participation in the American Thanksgiving Day Service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy.

More than 2,000 Americans gather at St. Paul’s to celebrate Thanksgiving with music, words of welcome from the U.S. Ambassador, preaching and prayers of gratitude.

The clergy of AIC and the International Community Church in Surrey take turns preaching for the service. The AIC Choir and Scott Stroman lead the music for the service, emphasizing African-American spirituals and American hymn tunes. They welcome singers to join just for this special occasion, attending rehearsals in November in preparation.

The service is free and open to the public, and happens every year on Thanksgiving Day, the fourth Thursday of November, at 11:00am at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Check our Events page in November for the latest information.
