Chapel Services and Choral Music - Trinity 2014

 

  "At least one service conducted according to the rites of the Scottish Episcopal Church will be performed daily (other than on a Saturday) during term time in the College Chapel..."

(Constitution of Glenalmond College, 2009)

As a foundation of the Scottish Episcopal (Anglican) Church, this expression of Christian faith and worship permeates much of the life of the College. The Glenalmond community comes together for worship in Chapel at least once every day (apart from Saturday) in term-time. There are also services during the holidays, as announced. This emphasis on Christian living and belief underpins a great deal of what happens in College. We also respect the beliefs and approaches of those who have another faith or none, and whilst all pupils are invited to share in Christian faith, there is no compulsion to do so. Integrity, tolerance, equality and forgiveness are values which all are invited to share.

The Eucharist is celebrated every Sunday in term-time. Christians of any denomination who would normally receive Communion in their own church are invited to receive Holy Communion in Chapel.

Baptism, the Sacrament of Reconciliation (commonly called Confession) and the Anointing of the Sick are available following consultation with Father Giles. Outwith term-time, Chapel can be available for Weddings - please contact the Bursar's Office for more information.
