The Chapel

Chapel is a place to sit, to breathe, to pray, to worship, to take time and be a little bit more human again. It is always open, always there, and you don’t need permission to open the door and go in.

Our choral services, based in the rites of the Church of England, are likewise open to everyone – whether faith is new or familiar or totally alien to you, and whatever life-story you bring as you join us. Our aim is to offer peace and hope and a few moments with eternity as we come before God together day by day. Our hope is that our whole community might find a safe space and an inspiration in our music and our prayers.
