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.
PLEASE NOTE - LANCING COLLEGE CHAPEL IS CURRENTLY CLOSED TO VISITORS
In response to the UK government’s statement that ‘very significant expansion’ of the number of cases of COVID-19 in this country is now likely, the College has adjusted its normal school routines and planned events in order to minimise and manage the risk of infection, both to our school community and to those close to us who may be particularly vulnerable to the virus.
Unfortunately, this means that the Chapel will not be open to visitors until further notice.

We feel that these additional layers of precautionary measures are now required, given that identifying, monitoring and containing the spread of the virus are proving increasingly challenging to world authorities.
Thank you for your support.
