Downing College is home to a diverse community of different faiths, and many who are not practicing members of any religion. However, thanks to the Anglican history of Cambridge University, the College contains a beautiful Chapel, a focus for Christian spirituality, prayer, worship, preaching, hospitality and friendship.
Events at the Chapel
All are very welcome to attend any of the Chapel's services, or visit it during the day to enjoy its peaceful atmosphere. For more information see:
Regular events include the very popular Keith's Café on Thursdays from 3:30 pm on the Chapel steps, where free doughnuts, biscuits, coffee, tea, lemonade and other refreshments are served to members of the College.
We have services on Sundays at 10 am and 6 pm, and our midweek group meets on Wednesdays at 6 pm for worship, pizza and Bible study.
The Chaplain and Choir
The Chapel is run by the Chaplain, the Revd Dr Keith Eyeons, a minister in the Church of England. He is assisted by an ecumenical team of student Chapel Wardens from a wide range of Christian traditions.
The Chapel plays a central role in the musical life of the College. Our excellent Chapel Choir sings at Choral Evensong on Sundays and at occasional late evening services of Compline.
