Corpus Christi College Oxford

For nearly five hundred years, the College Chapel has been a place for the corporate worship of God, for the ministry of Word and Sacrament and where prayers are offered for the needs of the local community and the world. The Chapel has also been for centuries a space set apart for quiet and reflection. It continues to this day to enrich the life of the College in all these ways.

All members of the College are invited to attend services and to participate in Chapel activities, including our long association with the Oxford Gatehouse which works with homeless people in the area.  All baptised persons or those who have communicant status in their own denomination are welcome to receive Holy Communion. We welcome members of the public to all Chapel services as well. The Chapel is open daily and to all.

The Chaplain

The Reverend Canon Dr Judith Maltby is an Anglican priest and has been Chaplain and Fellow of Corpus since 1993.  She is also Dean of Welfare with a general oversight, working with colleagues, for welfare provision and policy in the College.  In both roles, she is to be of help to all members of the College on welfare and faith matters and can be consulted confidentially.  She can also assist with accessing the wide range of provision and support available in the University. 

Outside Corpus and the University, Judith is involved in the work of the Church of England’s Ministry Division, which oversees the selection and training of Anglican clergy. She is also a member of the Crown Nominations Commission, which nominates individuals to be diocesan bishops in the Church of England.  Christian unity is also a commitment of hers and she has served on bodies to strengthen relations between the Church of England, the Methodist Church and the Roman Catholic Church.

Her academic interests include English church history in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and she is currently co-editing a volume of essays on Anglican women novelists of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, such as Dorothy Sayers and Barbara Pym (see her Fellows page for more information).
