Paschal Candle in Chapel


5.30pm Sung Eucharist (except where stated otherwise)

The centre of the Chapel's life is our gathering for worship on Sunday evenings, celebrating the presence of Christ in Word and Sacrament. We hear readings from Scripture and a sermon and receive communion. Keble College Chapel Choir sings the setting of the service and an anthem; the congregation joins in hymns and the psalm. All are welcome, whatever your background or experience of church. Drinks are available after the service in part of the Senior Common Room.
