Welcome from the Chaplain
Welcome to the King's Chapel.
Whoever you are, whatever you believe, this place belongs to you. Make yourself at home.
The Chapel offers a quiet space for reflection. It is open all day every day from early in the morning until late at night, with Quiet Hours from 7-8 a.m. and 10-11 p.m.
Contemplative worship is also offered here, almost all of it led by students, and some of it featuring stunning choral music. Faculty, staff and students of any religion or none are always very welcome, as they are also welcome to other kinds of events that go on in the chapel, like concerts and open mics.
The Chapel and its worship look not only upward, but also outward. In Halifax, social justice initiatives help make it possible for students to do things like befriend an isolated senior citizen, tutor a young student from the inner city, or prepare and serve food and spend a little time with diners at a soup kitchen. The Chapel also provides opportunities to get out of the city to rural and wilderness Nova Scotia. In the past these have included events like hikes, canoe trips, and retreats. All around the City is the land which sustains our life together, and beauty which calls forth awe and wonder and love.
Finally, just as the Chapel building, what goes on inside it, and the community gathered there all belong to the whole University, so does the Chaplain. TheChaplain is the one whose job it is to be available to all comers. If you’d like to talk, get in touch. The door is always open.
