Welcome to the Chapel at Gray’s Inn. The history of Chapel is as old as the Inn itself; there has been a chapel and Chaplain (later renamed Preacher) on the same site since 1315. Preacher Bishop Michael Doe is available to anyone who would like to meet with him. Christopher Bowers-Broadbent is the Chapel’s organist and choirmaster.
The Chapel is a place for quiet reflection open to all every day and for services on certain Sundays in the year. We are a Church of England foundation, but people from all Christian denominations, and those from all faiths and none, are always welcome.
Services and events
Please see the Inn’s calendar for details of upcoming services and events. Our Chapel Services sheet also contains a listing of events and further details regarding each service. This is also available to pick up when you visit the Chapel.
On ten Sundays per year we sing Mattins (from the Book of Common Prayer) and on two Sunday mornings there is a Choral Eucharist. Some of these are on ‘term-keeping’ days for students accumulating Qualifying Sessions.
If you would like to attend lunch following Mattins on any term keeping Sunday, you must book via the Education Department. To attend lunch on any non-term keeping Sunday, please book via Michelle Clark in the Treasury Office. Masters of the Bench must book via Michelle for lunch following any Mattins (term keeping or non-term keeping).
There is also a monthly said Holy Communion Service and an occasional Sung Evensong. The music is uplifting, the preaching is challenging, and you are invited to join us.
