Taking Part in Chapel

Everyone is warmly encouraged to take part in the life and activities of the Chapel. This may mean coming along to a service several times a week or only once in a while. It may mean singing in the Choir or becoming a Bible Clerk, one of the students who helps organise and lead services. It may mean reading a lesson at Evensong or coming to the pub to talk about the meaning of life. Or it may mean using the Chapel to stage a play or organise a concert. The Chapel is a resource for everyone at College.

Students are always welcome to come and talk to the Chaplain about getting involved in Chapel life.
