Oriel College Chapel
"The cross stands still while the world turns" - Bruno of Cologne
The College Chapel has been a place of prayer and learning at the heart of Oriel since it was founded in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1326. Sacred music sung by our superb Choir is an important part of the College’s tradition of Christian worship stretching back seven centuries. Prayers are offered every day on behalf of the College and its students as we hear Holy Scripture read and preached.
Divine service is held daily during Full Term. All are welcome.
Choral Evensong: Sundays at 6pm.
Holy Communion: Wednesdays at 6pm.
Morning Prayer: Monday to Saturday at 8am.
Evening Prayer: Monday to Saturday at 6pm.
Compline: Thursdays at 9.30pm. Night prayer by candlelight led by the choral scholars to help us wind down at the end of the day.
All Members of College are warmly invited to take part in the life and activities of the Chapel. Come along and find out more from the Chaplain or one of the Bible Clerks.
It is possible to book the Chapel for concerts and music recitals. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
