Orthodox Christian Worship on Campus

Liturgical formation

Chapel Life

At Trinity College, studies in theology are not understood to be carried out in isolation from the ongoing life of the church; rather, they are undertaken within the context of the daily worshipping life of the college community. For this reason, theology students in all degree programs are expected to be as regular in their chapel attendance as they can be.

Orthodox Christian worship services at Trinity College are served in English in conjunction with Holy Myrrhbearers Orthodox Mission. The rector of the mission is the Very Rev Fr Geoffrey Ready, who is also Director of Orthodox Studies.
