Sunday Service

Every Sunday 11am

We celebrate communion together on the first Sunday of every month, and ours is an open table  to which any believer is invited from any Christian background. We welcome those of any age to  our services, and have space to roam and play at the back of the chapel for those who struggle to sit for an hour in a pew!

Tours of the Chapel take place after the service on the first Sunday of every month. To book email

Wednesday Morning Prayer

Every Wednesday 7.15am

We pray together each week early on a Wednesday, strong coffee is provided! Here we consider, silently or shared, things on our minds during the week. We also include neighbours and the local community, churches around the world and events or people who’ve made us feel blessed.

The Good Friday Project

The Good Friday Project at Union Chapel offers people an opportunity both for contemplation and to hear live religious music of a professional standard, every Good Friday afternoon.

These are free annual events for the community, though donations are welcome. This year we will be showing The Passion of Christa where the story of the Passion is retold and re-imagined through the eyes of a female Christ. An evening of performance, ritual and music exploring suffering and grief from a unique perspective. Read more.

The inaugural concert was The People’s Passion, a stunning performance of J S Bach’s St John’s Passion in March 2013,  attended by over 900 people. On Good Friday 2014 Scott Stroman and local choir Eclectic Voices  presented the next concert, 7 Last Words From The Cross. Last year we held The Passion of Joan of Arc with Live Score

Carols by Candlelight

Every year just before Christmas we have a Carol Concert. It is glorious! The atmosphere is warm, friendly and magical. Everyone is encouraged to sing – there are traditional carols and festive hits. But the real highlight of the evening is when the lights go down and the Chapel is lit by the light of over 1000 of candles.

Keep an eye on our Calendar for this year’s installment.
