Friends of the Chapel

For over a century, the Chapel community has enriched College life and the Chapel Choir has moved and amazed congregations and audiences both at Keble College and much further afield. Friends of Keble College Chapel has been set up to promote and support the Chapel community, both present and future. We hope this new scheme will enable us to enhance funding for the community and provide ongoing support for opportunities offered by the Chapel, both musical and otherwise. As a Friend of Keble College Chapel, your support will help to ensure that the Chapel and Choir at Keble College will remain treasures of our community and beyond for centuries to come.
