During term time, the Chapel Choir sing Choral Evensong in the Anglican tradition every Wednesday at 5pm in the Mary Harris Memorial Chapel on Streatham Campus.
All are welcome to this beautiful service of sung evening prayer, and to the refreshments which follow, upstairs in the Old Library just opposite the Chapel.
Occasionally the choir will instead sing Choral Evensong at St Luke's Chapel and Exeter Cathedral – notification will be made here when this is the case.

details will be updated here over the holiday.
