King's College Chapel Events

Choral Evensong at the King's College Chapel
Wednesday, November 16, 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 the Chapel Choir sings the Short Evening Service by William Byrd and "And I Saw A New Heaven" by E. Bainton. All are welcome.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away (Revelation 21:4).
Choral Solemn Eucharist at the King's College Chapel
Thursday, November 17, 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 Fr. Ian Wissler, Rector of the Parish of Chester. The mass setting is Durufle's Messe Cum Jubilo. 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.
