Chapel and Term Card

The Cathedral is our College Chapel and is the vibrant centre of a worshipping community made up of students and staff, people from the city and diocese of Oxford and many international visitors. All members of Christ Church are of course welcome at all Cathedral Services, but there are some services and events that are particularly aimed at students and the college community.
