For students

St John’s has a lively Chapel Community with lots going on – from big choral services with our world-famous choir to the informal College Communion with our worship band and lots of student involvement; from pilgrimages all round the world to parties, early morning punting and extreme complines. There’s something for everyone, no matter how great or how little your faith, whatever your background or church denomination.

Being such a famous Chapel, we are delighted to welcome thousands of visitors from all around the world to our choral services but there are a whole host of things specially for Johnians, University Members and their guests. It’s your chapel, get involved!
