Anglican Chaplaincy

The Anglican Chaplaincy at the University of Exeter is a community of Prayer, Hospitality, Compassion and Study.

We follow the teachings of Jesus the Christ, who taught 2,000 years ago that we should love God with heart, soul, mind and strength; and love our neighbour as ourself. We believe that in doing our best to abide by the teaching of Christ, we are responding to the University motto: Lucem Sequimur - We follow the light.

We support the whole University community irrespective of creed, race, gender or sexuality. We hope to be inclusive, non-judgemental and compassionate and offer a warm welcome to all.

The University Chapels

We worship in two beautiful Chapels: the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel of the Holy Trinity and the Chapel of St Luke. We worship in a variety of different ways, ranging from the choral splendour of the Anglican Cathedral tradition led by our magnificent chapel choir, to a more informal and contemplative  expression, inspired by the Taize and Celtic traditions. There is a continual rhythm of prayer in the chapels throughout the week ensuring that the ancient wisdom of listening to the voice of God is upheld in the heart of the University.

What's going on?

There is a diverse community connected to the Anglican Chaplaincy. Many meet with MethAng (the Methodist and Anglican Society) on Monday evenings at 8 p.m. for socials, activities, talks and prayer. Others gather for Prayer and Pizza on Thursday evenings at 7.30 p.m. discussing topical issues, engaging in bible study and deepening their faith, often stopping afterwards for candlelit Compline (a beautiful, short and calming act of worship). Throughout the year we regularly gather together to share food, organise trips out and events around the University.
