Chapel services in the last week of term

As we approach the end of term the Chaplaincy would like to highlight some events in the Chapels to which all are welcome to attend:

In the College Chapel at the Strand:
A Service of Tenebrae on Tuesday 25 March at 18.00-19.00. Tenebrae is an old traditional service which moves from light towards darkness by the gradual extinguishing of candles representing the last days of Jesus’ life. It is a beautiful service with choral music sung by the choir, readings and periods of silence for reflection.

In the Chapel of Thomas Guy:
A Service of Music & Meditation for Passiontide on Thursday 27 March 17.30-18.30. This service of music and readings will focus on the last days of Jesus’ life, and will incorporate elements of the liturgy of the Church for Lent and Holy Week as well as hymns and well known anthems sung from the Chapel Choir.
