The historic Chapel building is a living place which brings the College community together in worship, reflection, and prayer. The Chapel is now closed. We look forward to the time when we can open again to those wish to pray, reflect, or just seek some quiet in this peaceful place.
About the Chapel
Built in the 1470s, the Chapel embodies Magdalene's rich heritage, our patron saint's life is depicted in the East Window, while memorials commemorate missionaries, church leaders, teachers, and those who gave their lives in conflict.
All Members of the College community, whatever their religious beliefs, are welcome to attend all Chapel services. Members of the public are welcome at the Sunday morning and evening services and at Choral Evensong on Thursdays.
The Magdalene College Choir sing Choral Evensong twice a week in Chapel as well as at prestigious College events and special occasions. The choir go on tour every summer and regularly sing in cathedrals, and for services and events across the UK.
There is an extensive program of worship in the College Chapel with many interesting and varied speakers throughout the College term. Find out what is going on this term in the Chapel and Discover what events and music recitals are taking place.
The College Chaplain, Rev'd Sarah Atkins, is available to talk to any member of the College community on any matter, personal, practical, or spiritual. Sarah is happy to hear from Members who would like to assist by reading lessons, leading prayers, or serving as a Chapel Officer.

The Chapel is open each day for those who wish to pray, reflect, or just seek some quiet in a beautiful and peaceful place. If you would like to discuss pastoral care, worship, the choir or an event in Chapel please contact a member of the Chapel team.
