The Chapel and Prayer

The Chapel is part of the mid-18th century west wing of the House and was originally intended to be a dining room.

In the 1870s it was radically altered with the floor being lowered and the entrance changed. It was redecorated in the pre-Raphaelite style and boasts impressive William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones designs. Today it continues to be used for occasional services, evensong and organ practice.

Easter Day Service

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret that we have decided to cancel our Easter Day Service this year.

A prayer for Ukraine from our Chaplain:

God of peace and justice,
We pray for the people of Ukraine today.
We pray for peace and the laying down of weapons.
We pray for all those who fear for tomorrow,
that your Spirit of comfort would draw near to them.
We pray for those with power over war and peace,
For wisdom, discernment and compassion
to guide their decisions.
Above all, we pray for all your precious children, at risk and in fear,
that you would hold and protect them.
We pray in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

Archbishop Justin Welby
Archbishop Stephen Cottrell
