Memorial Chapel, designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott and consecrated in 1927, commemorates Carthusians who died in action: 700 in the Great War and 350 in World War II. The whole School meets here three days each week for a short service at 8:30 am, and on Sundays for Evensong, Matins, or a School Eucharist. On Sundays when there is an Evening service Roman Catholic pupils may instead attend Mass in the Founders' Chapel. Parents are welcome at Sunday services but tickets are required for Remembrance Sunday. Parents and members of the the local community are also welcome to join us for the Candle-lit Carol Service.
Chapel provides a variety of worship experience: enthusiastic hymn-singing; a good standard of congregational Psalm chanting; the choir performing a repertoire of fine Church Music to a high standard; the hushed, reflective atmosphere of Candle-lit Carols; the quiet intimacy of a Eucharist in Millennium Chapel; the solemnity of Remembrance Sunday with the sounding of The Last Post and The Silence.
Each year there is a Confirmation Service in Late January and pupils from any year group except the Fourths can be prepared for this.
