Christmas morning service in the Riddarholmen Church

Welcome to a special Christmas morning service in a special church. Stockholm Scout District will be hosting one of the few services to be held in the mediaeval abbey.

be in good time!

The yearly Christmas service is a popular event. The church allows 450 people, but can be full at this event.

Note! The Church´s floor of tombstones is very fragile. Canes with metal tips or shoes with spikes must not be used

The Christmas morning service in the Riddarholmen Church is a tradition dating back to 1937.

The Christmas morning service will be arranged by this year's Vässarö confirmation candidates. The public are welcome to attend the service.

The church will be lit exclusively by candles. Since the church does not have heating, we recommend wearing warm clothing and bringing a seat pad.
