Services are taken regularly by our own chaplain who also provides pastoral support to the residents, although there is no required religious affiliation or observance for prospective residents.
The chapel is open to visitors on the first Saturday of the month from 11.00am until 3.00pm from May to September inclusive. Admission is free. Leaflets about the chapel can be obtained and there are postcards to purchase. Visitors are also welcome to join our residents at the weekly services.
Rev Ivor Dowse, our Honorary Chaplain and an almshouse resident, said: “The chapel is of great historic interest, and since opening to the public in April 2012, many local residents and visitors to the city have taken the opportunity to come inside the chapel and look around”.
