The chapel has been a fundamental part of New College life since the college’s foundation in 1379 and in today’s college it is the home of the internationally renowned New College Choir. The chapel is the focus of religious worship in college where all members of our community and many Oxford and international visitors come to experience the beauty of our daily choral services. For all people of faith or none it hopes to provide a place of quiet and contemplation away from the stresses of daily life.
Music has always been a highly valued part of the college community and the chapel is used by students and external groups for concerts, plays and lectures and we welcome this diverse cultural contribution to our college life. Full details of how to book the chapel can be found in the Concert Guidelines.
While firstly a college chapel for fellows, students and staff, we welcome all our visitors here who are drawn to its history, its music and its witness of faith.
