The Scottish Episcopal Church

Anglican Chaplaincy
at the University of Glasgow

‘The Anglican Chaplaincy at the University of Glasgow aims to provide spiritual accompaniment, liturgical worship, and an encouraging community to seekers of all sorts.’

– The Rt Rev Kevin Pearson, Bishop of Glasgow and Galloway

Special Services 


set in the University’s Memorial Chapel (West Quadrangle)
sung by the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir

Free of charge and unticketed

The Anglican Chaplaincy at the University of Glasgow (part of the University’s Interfaith Chaplaincy) hosts ten unmissable special services in the 2022-2023 academic year. Sung by the University of Glasgow Chapel Choir, these spellbinding events offer a feast for the eyes and the ears, connecting all who join them to ancient mystical practices of prayer. Services take place on select Tuesday evenings and last around one hour. They include readings from Holy Scripture, spiritual reflections, and beauty in music and silence. All are welcome, regardless of affiliation with any religion or the university.
