The Chaplain to University Staff shares in the life and worship of Great St. Mary’s and Michaelhouse, and is involved with other occasional groups, meetings and services in the life of the University.

Morning Prayer (Common Worship) is said and the Eucharist (Common Worship) is celebrated at Merton Hall Farmhouse most Wednesdays, at 09:00 and 13:05 respectively ~ All Welcome!

‘UL Prayers’ is a small group, meeting monthly at the University Library. During Lent each year we ‘up the stakes’ and meet weekly. We have enjoyed doing theology from film using ‘The Power of Small Choices’ and ‘Not a Tame Lion,’ both by Hilary Brand, based on footage from ‘Babette’s Feast’ , ‘The Shawshank Redemption’,'Shadowlands’ and ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ respectively.

Next meeting: 22nd May ~ Post-Easter Eucharist ~ 13.05 – 13.55 ~ Aoi Seminar Room, UL ~ All Welcome!

The Festival of Ideas and theScience Festival are always celebrated with Choral Evensong at Great St. Mary’s.

The University Staff Carol Service is a great favourite, and is followed byseasonal refreshments.
Tuesday 16th December 2014, 3.30 p.m. at Great St. Mary’s.
