Chapel: Services

Virtual Chapel

While the Merton College Chapel doors are closed due to the coronavirus lockdown, Chapel services will continue in an altered format. The Chapel Team has assembled a virtual service for each Sunday of Trinity Term to assist us in our spiritual life together. We hope that you will join us as we seek to keep our community spiritually connected during this time of physical isolation. More resources can be found on our Socially Isolated | Spiritually Connected page, and you can stay up to date with all we are doing via our social media hub.
