Lancing College Chapel


Lancing's remarkable Chapel has a very significant role in the lives of pupils and of the school community. It symbolises the importance of Christian worship at our school and has a major influence on pupils’ strong sense of moral and spiritual awareness.

Lancing staff and pupils demonstrate an inclusive approach to all members of the school community whatever their situation, culture or religious background. Pupils can't fail to be affected by the beauty of the building, which is the central minster of the Woodard Corporation.

Whole-school services take place in the Upper Chapel and to witness the whole school coming together as one community in celebration, prayer and reflection is an amazing sight. The crypt is used for smaller congregations, such as for the Daily Eucharist as well as for choir practice and private prayer.

The whole school attends the College Eucharist every Wednesday morning, on one or two Sundays each term and to gather to mark special events such as Remembrance Sunday, Founder’s Day and the Leavers’ Service.

The College's renowned chapel choir is made up of pupils and staff from across the school and plays a major part in our worship.

Parents are very welcome to attend any of the Sunday services.

The Chapel is open to the public daily throughout the year from 10am to 4pm, and 12 noon to 4pm on Sundays and Bank Holidays (closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day, Good Friday & Easter Sunday).

Chapel Closure: Monday 8 July – Thursday 11 July
Due to a private ticketed event, the Chapel will be closed to visiting on the above dates.
We are very sorry for the disappointment this will cause.
The Chapel will reopen on Friday 12th July.
