Chapel services

At the moment there are no public services in Chapel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  'Virtual' services will be available shortly, along with other resources to keep us all connected with one another and with God, and to promote wellbeing. I will continue to say morning prayer every day, praying for the College community, those in need, the nation and the world. You can join me in prayer if you wish by clicking here and selecting the service you would like to follow. You are welcome to ask me to pray for something specific by emailing 

During termtime, there are normally around nine services per week in Chapel, four of which are sung by the College Choir or the St Catharine's Girls' Choir. The usual timetable is found at the bottom of this page.
