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.

Following Church of England guidance Chapter had to take the painful steps of suspending public worship in the Cathedral. Our rhythm of prayer nonetheless continues and we have a growing range of material online, including worship each Sunday, a daily blog and a weekly musical reflection. You may also like to make use of the special booklet of Prayer Resources we have created. 

Chapel services will continue in Trinity Term and are moving online. For details of all services and events in Trinity Term see our Term Card

Leavers' Evensong - Sunday 21st June at 6pm. A very special Online Leavers' Evensong with music by the Cathedral Choir and College Choir, readings, poetry and prayers, an address by the College Chaplain, and a very special blessing written and spoken by our student leavers.
