It features music from the Chapel Choir and performances by College musicians, and is followed by hot chocolate and port.
(No Night Songs on 26th April and 16th June, due to choral services taking place earlier in the evening)

Holy Communion takes place on Sundays at 10am, including music from the Chapel Choir, and followed by brunch in the Catzebo.

Attending in person

Everyone is welcome in the College Chapel, and you can come as you are. 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 or if you don't have your own). Fellows usually wear gowns to Sunday evensong. 

We aim to make the Chapel safe and welcoming for everyone.  You are welcome to wear a mask during services if you prefer, and there is also a hand sanitiser station in the chapel. We open the windows and door to ensure good ventilation, and there are 'reserved' signs available to enable those who wish to socially distance to do so. Those who find the stall seating uncomfortable due to a health condition or disability are very welcome to make use of the rather more comfy chairs on either side of the aisle.
