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. For details of all services and events in Trinity Term see our Term Card

Prayer at the Cathedral

Christ Church Cathedral is our college chapel and you are warmly invited to share in the beautiful worship. Evensong is sung by the world famous Cathedral Choir most days at 6pm, but most Mondays in term time by the College Choir.
