Concerts in the Chapel
An opportunity for established and up-and-coming maritime singer-songwriters to perform in Halifax’s best listening room. Past performers have included Amelia Curran, Old Man Luedecke, Thom Swift, Ben Caplan, Ostrea Lake, Nick Everett, and Museum Pieces. Admission is by donation, and all donations at the door go to a local charitable organization. Past beneficiaries include: Laing House, Metro Non-Profit Housing, St. George's YouthNet, St. George's Refugee Sponsorship, and Adsum House.
Each Friday at 5 p.m. a student from King’s or Dalhousie gives a brief meditation on the Lessons of the Day, or on a spiritual theme. This is an important moment for the building of spiritual community as students gather to honour their peers by listening attentively and expectedly to their fellows.

DALHOUSIE ANGLICAN SOCIETY (DAng!)
The Dalhousie Anglican Society (DAng) is for all students, staff and faculty of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia who have a relation to, or interest in, the Christian way of being, thinking, living, and serving others that is called ‘Anglicanism’. We gather each week at the Dalhousie Multifaith Centre (1321 Edward Street) on Wednesdays at 7:45 a.m. for a quiet, contemporary Eucharist (Wine Before Breakfast).

SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS SOCIETY (STAS)
The purpose of the Saint Thomas Aquinas Society (STAS) is to encourage fellowship and learning amongst all those who serve at the altar, the officiants of the daily offices, the members of the altar guild, and all others who maintain worship at the King’s College Chapel. The main work of the society is to sustain the regular pattern of prayer within the Chapel by saying the divine office at least three times per day, and serving at the daily Holy Communion and larger choral services throughout the week. STAS encourages friendship amongst its members and promotes learning about the liturgical and spiritual life.

Every once in a while the Chapel will hold a Quiet Day: a day or morning of silence, reflection and prayer in the Chapel. No preparation is necessary, it is simply an opportunity to enjoy some communal silence with reflections from the Chaplain to guide your thoughts.
Upcoming Quiet Days are marked on the Calendar.
