Choral Reflection: Windows into Eternity

This term our Choral Reflections (Mondays at 6 pm) take the seven windows of the Chapel as the source of our inspiration. The aim of this weekly service is to provide a more reflective space, shaping our thoughts and prayers around the ideas of each window in turn through music, words and silence. All are welcome to any or all of these services.

Chapel Supper

Following Choral Reflection in 2nd, 4th, and 6th weeks, everyone who attends the service is invited to join with us and enjoy a (free!) supper in the Memorial Room.


This meditative, candle-lit service is chanted every Wednesday of the year at 9 pm. In term time, it is followed by port and hot chocolate in the Chaplain’s room. All are welcome.


Open Rehearsal and Evensong

If you are interested in joining the Choir please join us for an open rehearsal at 4.30 pm on Saturday of 0th week (7 October), after which everyone will sing Choral Evensong together at 6 pm. Further questions, or enquiries about joining the choir, may be addressed to the Director of Music.

All Souls’ Day – Requiem

On Thursday of 4th week (2 November) at 6 pm the Choir will sing Fauré’s Requiem in a special service of Holy Communion during which we will remember the departed, particularly giving thanks for those whom we have loved. If you would like anyone to be remembered by name during the service, please add their name to the list at the back of Chapel or to the prayer board.
