Virtual Chapel

Welcome to our Virtual Chapel

During this time of uncertainty, we are continuing to host a space for prayer and contemplation on this page.

The Claire Chapel is now open for private prayer, but our collective worship remains online.

If you would like, you can leave a prayer request below and also have a candle lit on your behalf. Some of our chaplains will also be leading virtual worship services, and we will be posting details of these on our social media. Please see our Facebook feed below.

Revised Common Lectionary Gospel for the Second Sunday in Lent Year B

Mark 8:31-38
Jesus began to teach his disciples that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”

He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Revised Common Lectionary Gospel for the First Sunday of Lent Year B

Mark 1:9-15
9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptised by John in the Jordan. 10 And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.” 12 And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, 15 and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”

Leave a prayer request

All prayers will be prayed for regularly by our chaplains and student outreach workers. A candle for each prayer will be lit by either Father Marc at the Catholic Chaplaincy or outreach worker Joseph at St Luke’s Lutheran Church.

If you would like the prayer to remain private, you may say ‘Private prayer’.
