St John’s College

Chapel Services Michaelmas Term 2015


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 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 lessons at Evensong this term comprise selections from the Prophets and the entirety of the Gospel of St Mark. Considered by most scholars the earliest of the Gospels, St Mark’s narrative is wonderfully dramatic with a real sense of immediacy to its episodic structure, and yet this is no naive storytelling as key theological themes are developed to support the needs of disciples in the way of the Cross. Our Sunday evening sermon series this term, ‘Science and Religion’, will explore the fundamental questions about the relationship between science and faith. 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
