Upcoming Events at King's Chapel

Choral Evensong at the King's College Chapel
Wednesday, October 26, 5PM
Come join King's students of all faiths and none as we gather in the Chapel for this mid-week service of Choral Evensong. This week's Evensong is a "FYP Evensong:" a traditional service of Evensong that connects the ancient tradition of sacred music with the ancient philosophical tradition studied in the Foundation Year Programme (FYP) at King's. Following the service, which features Gregorian Chant and a Medieval hymn by Hildegard von Bingen, Rev'd Dr. Tom Curran gives a talk on "Polyphony after Dante." All are welcome.
Choral Solemn Eucharist at the King's College Chapel
Thursday, October 27, 5PM
In the King's Chapel, the main gathering for Choral Holy Communion is on Thursday evenings so that students who wish to be involved in the life of a parish church are free to do so on Sunday mornings. We invite you to join us for our weekly University Service of Choral Eucharist. In the university chapel tradition, the style of corporate worship is peculiar to the college setting: richly poetic, liturgical, challenging, and countercultural. Our preacher this week is Rev'd Dr. Dan Green, minister of the Chester United Baptist Church. The mass setting is Ralph Vaughan Williams' Mass in G Minor: a liturgical preview of the King's Chapel Choir's upcoming concert at All Saints' Cathedral. All are welcome to join us in worship!
Sung Compline at the King's College Chapel
Mondays & Tuesdays, 9:30PM
Many people have found the contemplative, candlelit, monastic service of Sung Compline to be a peaceful and reflective way to end the day before resting for the night. This 22-minute service is sung in the King's College Chapel twice a week: on Monday the Women's Compline Choir leads the office; on Tuesday the Men's Compline Choir leads. The office of Compline invites contemplation on themes of darkness, light, immortality, and the eternal transformation of day into night, night into day. All are welcome. Be present, O merciful God, and protect us through the silent hours of this night, so that we who are wearied by the changes and chances of this fleeting world, may repose upon thy eternal changelessness.
