Chapel and spiritual life in Queens'

The Chapel

Welcome to the webpages of Queens’ College Chapel. The New Chapel at Queens’ stands in Walnut Tree Court and was built in 1891 to accommodate the growing number of students. One or two things have changed since then, but the Chapel remains a place in which to encounter God and one another. To this end we follow a pattern of prayer and worship which is greatly enriched by our Chapel Choir, and other choral groups. We also enjoy a range of speakers at Choral Evensong on a Sunday.

Queens’ is a diverse college and as a Chapel we seek to be an inclusive place where this diversity is respected, embraced, and encouraged. The Chapel is an Anglican (Church of England) Foundation but it also exists for all members of College and seeks to be a place of hospitality for people of all faiths and none. We hope you enjoy your virtual visit and look forward to welcoming you in person soon.
