Events in Trinity Chapel

Trinity offers services and venues for ceremonies and celebrations, including weddings, baptisms and funerals.

The Chapel of Trinity College and Janet Clarke Hall is very popular venue for important events at Trinity College and beyond. 

The Trinity Chaplain, the Rev Samuel Dow, is keen to work with current and former Trinity students and the wider community to ensure that events are memorable and managed with sensitivity.

A very flexible space

The chapel comfortably seats 60 people in six centre-facing pews. An additional 100 people may be accomodated in pews near the west door. Seating for up to 200 can be configured in the chapel if required.


Wheelchair access is available through the Annexe on the north side of the Chapel.

Special events


Trinity's Chapel is a popular place for the weddings of current and past students and staff, and is available for traditional Anglican marriage celebrations.

People of other Christian traditions are also encouraged to hold their weddings at Trinity, and should email the Chaplaincy Administrator to discuss their specific requirements and how Trinity might assist them.


Funerals (or memorial services) may be held in the Chapel, subject to availability. It is not necessary for the person who has died to have links with Trinity College for their funeral to be held here.

Rather, the priorities of an Anglican funeral are the celebration of the deceased's life, the dignified tending to their mortal remains, and the opportunity for loved ones, friends and colleagues to make their farewells.

If you wish to hold a funeral at Trinity, please email the Chaplaincy Administrator, who will make a time for you to meet with a Chaplain to discuss the arrangements.
