WELCOME TO NEW COLLEGE CHAPEL
Everyone is welcome to our chapel services. We are an inclusive community
and hope that the chapel provides a place where anyone can come for peaceful
reflection supported by our liturgy and music. The chapel ethos is expressed
in this prayer by Bishop Thomas Ken, a fellow of the college in the seventeenth
O God, make the door of this house wide enough to receive all who need human
love and fellowship; narrow enough to shut out all envy, pride and strife. Make its
threshold smooth enough to be no stumbling block to children, nor to straying feet,
but rugged and strong enough to turn back the tempter’s power. God make the
door of this house the gateway to thy divine kingdom.
