Join us for Evensong at St Peter's College, Oxford

Evensong is free and open to all. People of all faiths and no faith are welcome.

What to expect at Evensong at St Peter's

Some people attend Evensong for spiritual reasons: prayer, reflection and worship. Others join us simply to enjoy a peaceful hour where they can relax whilst surrounded by beautiful religious music from across the centuries. Many tourists and University visitors choose to attend Evensong as a part of the essential 'Oxford experience'.

Whatever your faith background, and whatever your reason for visiting St Peter's, you are welcome. The services are short, consisting mainly of choral music, scripture readings and prayers. Pamphlets with details of how you can (if you choose to) participate in the congregational aspects of the service are given at the door.

Evensong services in the St Peter's College Chapel are according to the rites of the Church of England. The services are led by the Chaplain and the College Choir and include sung liturgy, Bible readings, prayers, a choir anthem or motet and a congregational hymn. 

Sundays at 6pm during term time

On Sundays, preachers from different Christian traditions preach short sermons and there are refreshments after the service. The Sunday service begins promptly at 6pm and lasts approximately one hour.

Thursdays at 6.15pm during term time

There is no sermon at our Thursday Evensong service. The Thursday service begins promptly at 6.15pm and lasts approximately 45 minutes.
