Evensong is free and open to all. People of all faiths and no faith are welcome.

Some people attend Evensong for spiritual reasons: prayer, reflection and worship. Others join us simply to enjoy a peaceful hour where they can relax whilst surrounded by beautiful religious music from across the centuries. Many tourists and University visitors choose to attend Evensong as a part of the essential 'Oxford experience'.

Whatever your faith background, and whatever your reason for visiting St Peter's, you are welcome. The services are short, consisting mainly of choral music, scripture readings and prayers. Pamphlets with details of how you can (if you choose to) participate in the congregational aspects of the service are given at the door.

Evensong services in the St Peter's College Chapel are according to the rites of the Church of England. The services are led by the Chaplain and the College Choir and include sung liturgy, Bible readings, prayers, a choir anthem or motet and a congregational hymn.
