The Chapel is open to all faiths for prayer and quiet contemplation.
Following developments and updated Government guidance in relation to the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) the Inn is operating a reduced service. Please see our News for the latest updates.
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.
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).
The Chapel is a place for quiet reflection open every day from Monday to Friday, 11am to 6pm, except when Hall is closed. Details of these closures can be found on the Find Us page.
