Enjoy the life of the Chapel, of music making and worship, in the lovely intimacy of our Chapel. The main weekly service is on Sunday at 5.45pm, and is usually Choral Evensong or a Sung Eucharist (Holy Communion).

Sung Services

Music plays a large part in our worship, drawing upon the rich tradition of sacred music from across the centuries to praise God and deepen our sense of his loving presence. Services include a sermon which shares and explores the meaning of the Good News of Christ, and we welcome visiting preachers to represent an ecumenical range of Christian denominations and theological traditions.


This is a service of the Word, drawing profoundly on the Bible, and one of the jewels of the Anglican tradition. There is always a Psalm, two Bible readings (one each from the Old and New Testaments) and two ‘canticles' (songs) from the Gospel of Luke, known as the Magnificat and the Nunc Dimittis (Luke 1.46-55 and 2.29-32), and an anthem.  We offer prayers for the needs of the world. This service is particularly enjoyed for the variety of the music settings, especially for the 'preces and responses' (one of the oldest forms of prayer in Christianity), canticles and the anthem, each helping us to hear the biblical passages anew.

Sung Eucharist

This is also known as Holy Communion, the Lord's Supper or the Mass. It is a service of the Word and Sacrament, again profoundly rooted in the Scriptures.

If you are baptised or have communicant status in your own denomination, you’re welcome to receive Holy Communion.

Weekday Services

During the week there are occasional informal said services of Holy Communion at lunchtime, followed by sandwiches. Compline (the ‘Night Office’, to 'complete' the day) is sung a few times a term, followed by hot chocolate and cake.
