Corpus Christi College University of Cambridge


The Corpus Chapel

Corpus was originally founded in 1352 for the pursuit of religious understanding, as well as for education and research.

Whatever your denomination or faith, all members of the College – Fellows, graduates and undergraduates – are invited to join in Christian worship at the Sunday and weekday services in our beautiful Chapel. Friends, relations and other visitors are always warmly welcomed too.

Friendly proactive worship

Our lively Chapel community is made up of students and Fellows from all over the world. There is morning and evening prayer each day, plus choral services on Sundays and other days.

We offer many opportunities to think about, discuss and explore faith and new ideas, through informal talks, discussions, films and a human rights letter-writing group.

The Dean of Chapel also organises regular day trips, retreats, reading weeks, and longer expeditions such as a 10-day pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine in 2015 and a trip to Georgia in 2016.

Within the University there is also a student-run Christian Union and a wide range of religious societies for people of all faiths and outlooks.

Contact the Dean of Chapel

The Dean James Buxton is readily available to all members and staff of the College to discuss anything in confidence – whether spiritual or not – at any time, with or without appointment.

You can reach him at his rooms (D4), by pigeonhole, by email or simply catch him for a chat around College.
