Choir in Chapel conducted by Robert Quinney

The chapel is a place of sanctuary, of beautiful words and music, of peace and contemplation –  and is open to everyone.

Choral services take place each day (except Wednesday) in university terms, and all are welcome.  There is no need to be a member of the college or even of the university.  There is no dress code, no entry requirement, and no need to be part of any religious tradition.  The services offer a blend of ancient and modern in speech and music.  The traditional Anglican service of Evensong is at the heart of the chapel’s life but the choir also sings for major feast days in the church’s year, carol services and special college events, such as the installation of a new Warden. 

Sunday services often include a visiting preacher, and are followed by drinks for members of college.

For details of all services and special events in chapel, and of each day's music, see the Chapel Card and Music List below.
