Celebrating Creatures: Sunday Evensong at 6pm

We share the planet with all manner of creatures.  They may feed and clothe us; lift our spirits with their beauty and calm our minds with their company.  We humans do not always care for and protect other species in a way that is responsible and respectful, and so this term we bring together speakers who are concerned for creatures from a variety of different angles.

Chapel

 

The Chapel stands in First Court, at the heart of the college, as a place of worship, reflection and enquiry. It is also a focus for the college community, where all are welcome. The Chapel is open every day, for those seeking a time of quietness, or to pray.  For those who prefer a non Christian space to pray and reflect the college also has a Multi Faith Prayer Room near the library, to which there is 24 hour access.

Ϻ College has one of the finest mixed-voice choirs in Cambridge and, during Term, the Choir enriches the worship of the Chapel by singing Evensong on Thursdays (6.45pm) and Sundays (6pm). Coming to Evensong is a wonderful way to hear the Choir, explore spirituality, and get to know a lively community of students, staff and Fellows.

For details of all our services, please download the Chapel Card.

The Chapel is used for a variety of services in Full Term, and weddings during the University vacation.  It is also used for musical events and rehearsals during term-time.  All services and events that use the Chapel space (including any visiting speakers or performers) are managed by the Chaplain.  Please contact her on chaplain@christs.cam.ac.uk for details.
