St Peter's Chapel

The Chapel

The college Chapel is a place of worship and prayer with an open and inclusive ethos, as well as being used for many other purposes by the college community, such as musical rehearsals and concerts, meetings and lectures, plays and other artistic events, social events and dinners.

Regular Sunday services resume with informal holy communion followed by breakfast on Sunday 10 October 2021 at 9.30am and Choral evensong with sermon at 6pm.

The term card for Michaelmas 2021 can be downloaded here. The music list for Michaelmas 2021 can be downloaded here.

For more information on activities in the Chapel community see St Peter's College Chapel Facebook page.

Welcome from the Chaplain, The Revd Dr Elizabeth Pitkethly

I am very much looking forward to meeting new and returning students. If you are already in Oxford please do drop by and see me in my college room on Thursday afternoons (I am in Besse 5, which is near where new students register). 

In addition, I am leading walks to Port Meadow on Wednesday 6 October - that’s Fresher’s week (leaving the Porters’ lodge at 4.10pm) and again on Saturday 23 October leaving at 2pm. 

I realise that many people are feeling particularly anxious during these times of Covid and are concerned for themselves or family members. If you would like to talk to a priest or just have a chat with someone outside of your usual circle of friends, please either send me an email (elizabeth.pitkethly@spc.ox.ac.uk) or get in touch through teams or by phone (+44(0)1865 278905).

I am a member of the College’s Welfare Team and happy to chat to any member of college in confidence.

There will be a discussion group for those wanting to think about the Bible and Christian faith which meets early evening online (usually Wednesdays or Fridays). We are currently working through the Pilgrim Course. From time to time we also have an online group for those who want to find out more about the Christian faith.

In order to avoid double booking it is essential that everyone wishing to book the Chapel follow the established procedures.
