Attending in person

You don't have to dress up in especially formal clothes to come to Chapel; you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable. Some people like to wear a gown if they're going on to a formal hall afterwards, and it's usual to wear a gown if you are doing one of the readings at Evensong (there's a spare one if you volunteer at the last minute!)

Now that more of the Covid restrictions have been lifted, more of us are able to gather in Chapel at the same time, and we are able to have congregational singing in services again.  As with all spaces in College, we'll review our guidelines regularly to try and keep the College environment safe for everyone.  When you come to Chapel, please always bring a mask, as you will need to wear one during services (unless you are exempt) and at other times when the Chapel is busy. There is also a hand sanitiser station in the chapel.
