Closures and notices

The Chapel Royal

During the summer Choir Recess, the only religious services held at the chapel will be Holy Communion at 8:30 on Sundays. 

This is a working chapel which always closes for religious services on Sundays and other holy days.

Following advice issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, the Chapel Royal has suspended public worship until further notice. The chapel remains open for private prayer to ticket holders, members and staff. This will also include Sunday lunchtime recitals.

The worshipping life of the chapel will continue in private, and we hold you all in our prayers.

You may wish to follow our Facebook page @ChapelRoyal where we will be issuing sermons and other material to help sustain our spiritual life during this difficult time.
