Chapel

Welcome to the Chapel at Gray’s Inn. 

Please see our  Covid-19 page for the latest updates on the Inn’s response to Covid-19. Please use NHS COVID-19 app when visiting Chapel. 

The Chapel is open to all faiths for private prayer and quiet reflection Monday to Friday, 11am to 6pm, (please contact one of our security staff for access).

Services with a congregation resumed on 18 April 2021.  

Details of closures can be found on the Find Us page. 

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.

We are a Church of England foundation, but people from all Christian denominations, and those from all faiths and none, are always welcome. Services are held on certain Sundays during the year (see below).
