University Chapels

St Salvator's Chapel

St Salvator’s Chapel serves the whole University community, hosting ecumenical services led by the University Chaplain, Reverend Dr Donald MacEwan. The Chapel sees a lively schedule of worship, centring on a weekly Sunday liturgy at 11am, during term time, with the renowned St Salvator’s Chapel Choir, congregational hymns and a visiting preacher.  An optional service of Holy Communion follows the main liturgy, and refreshments are served each week. Gowns are encouraged, and many members of the congregation can be seen participating in the famous pier walk, which takes place immediately after the service. The Chapel also holds a ten-minute service of Morning Prayer each Monday to Friday, during term time, as well as weekly services of Choral Evensong on Sundays and Wednesdays.
