Anglican Chaplaincy This Week

These events are either organised or hosted by the Anglican Chaplaincy, or they are events organised by other churches that we will be participating in.

Alumni and supporters who are no longer located near the University Chapels may wish to note that these events sometimes take place at churches outside Exeter.
