Faith support

The College is fortunate to possess two historic chapels as reminders of the College’s Christian heritage. The Norman Chapel dates from the 11th Century; the Tunstal Chapel, established in the 1540’s, was used by the Prince Bishops of Durham as their private chapel. Both chapels are used for worship within the College. The College appoints a Chapel Clerk and Sacristan from the JCR.

The College has a strong choral tradition and appoints a Director of Music and an Organ Scholar each year. The College Choir has recently produced a CD of choral music and regularly sings in Durham Cathedral, and elsewhere. Do visit the Chapel website for more information.

In terms of undergraduate admissions, the College makes no distinction whatsoever on the basis of religion, and welcomes applicants of all faiths or of none.
