St John’s College

Chapel Services Lent Term 2014


St John’s College Chapel Since the early thirteenth century the site of St John’s College has had a place of Christian worship. The original Chapel, whose ruins may still be viewed in First Court, belonged to a hospital for the poor and infirm and was retained when the College was founded in 1511. Our present Chapel, built in 1869 by Sir George Gilbert Scott, continues this faithful offering of prayer with regular services enriched by the College’s outstanding choral tradition. Members of the public are welcome at all Choral Services, printed in BOLD TYPE in this list. Surplices are provided in the Chapel, and are worn by members of the College on Sundays, at Evensong on Saturdays, and on other holy days as marked in this list with the letter S.

Choral Evensong Our service of Evensong follows that set down in the Church of England’s Book of Common Prayer in 1662. The service can be followed on the cream cards in the stalls. On Tuesdays to Sundays it is sung by the College Choir of men and boys, who study either at the College or at the College School. On Mondays Evensong is sung by the College’s new mixed-voice choir, St John’s Voices. The words of the psalm appointed for the day and sung by the Choir may be found in the Book of Common Prayer (usually red). Please join in singing the hymns, usually found in the green New English Hymnal. In accordance with the spirit of the Book of Common Prayer (a portion of) the Morning Psalms are sung during the first half of term, and (a portion of) the Evening Psalms during the second half. Our Old Testament lessons this term are taken from the books of Genesis and Exodus, and tell the story of the people of Israel as they follow Joseph to Egypt and generations later are saved from slavery there by the God of Moses who leads them to the Promised Land. Our New Testament lessons are drawn from the Letters of St Paul, some of the earliest Christian texts, written to the churches in Rome, Philippi and Corinth in the mid-first century. Our sermon series this term is entitled ‘Travelling and Journeying’. Our guest preachers through reflection and experience will explore the concept of Journeying through Life. “New scenes of Wisdom may each step display, and Knowledge open as my days advance!” (Life by poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge). Further details are available on the Chapel website: www.joh.cam.ac.uk/chapel_and_choir/sermons

Sung Eucharist The service may be followed in the yellow Sung Eucharist booklets. Please join in all words marked in bold. Our readings are printed on a separate white sheet, which may be collected from the entrance to the Chapel. Hymns are found in the green hymn book in the stalls. The Chapel is part of the Church of England, within the world-wide Anglican Communion, and welcomes all Christians who are communicant members of their own church to receive Communion with us.

Listen Online A Chapel service is webcast on a weekly basis throughout the year. Webcast services are available from midday on Tuesdays. You can listen online at: www.sjcchoir.co.uk/webcast
