Choral Reflection: the Lord’s Prayer
This term, our Choral Reflections (Mondays at 6 pm) focus on the words of the Lord’s Prayer. The aim of Choral Reflection is to provide a more reflective space, taking one phrase from this key prayer each week and taking time to shape our responses around it using music, words and silence. All are welcome to any or all of these Reflections.
During Hilary full term, Compline will be sung at 9.15 pm. There will be the opportunity for conversation over a quiet drink after the service, usually in the Chaplain’s room.
Choral Evensong to Celebrate the Coronation
On Sunday of 3rd week (7 May) we will celebrate the Coronation at Choral Evensong. The music will reflect the occasion, and the Chaplain will preach.
There will be a service of Holy Communion for Ascension Day at 6 pm on Thursday of 4th week.
Roman Catholic Mass in College
One of the University Catholic Chaplains will say Mass in our Chapel on Monday of 6th week (29 May). The Choir will sing. All are welcome.
College Confirmation Service
Confirmation is a significant occasion. For some, it is an adult declaration of promises made on their behalf at baptism; for others a choosing to belong to this particular part of Christ’s Church. All candidates receive prayer for the strength and guidance of the Holy Spirit.
The Bishop of Dorchester will celebrate a service of Confirmation in Chapel on Trinity Sunday, Sunday of 7th week (4 June). Anyone who would like to know more about confirmation or who would like to be confirmed should contact the Chaplain.
Holy Communion for Corpus Christi
We will celebrate the institution of Holy Communion with a special service on Thursday of 7th week (8 June).
All who are leaving College this summer are invited to come to a special Evensong on Sunday of 8th week (11 June). This will be a wonderful opportunity to give thanks for what has been, and to pray for all that is to come.
Music by the Lake
The Choir will present a concert of light music by the Lakeside on Monday of 8th week (12 June) at 6 pm. Details to follow.
