The Chapel Royal is a living, vibrant church, located at the heart of the historic palace. Everyone is welcome to attend the regular services held in the Chapel Royal and to worship in the place where kings and queens have done so for centuries.

October begins with our Dedication Festival and concludes with Bible Sunday. On 11th October we look forward to being part of the London Borough of Richmond Festival of Culture and to festival goers joining us for Choral Evensong at 3.30 pm that day. While the choristers are taking their October half term break, the Director of Music will be conducting auditions for next year’s intake. The new Chaplain, Father Anthony Howe, continues to settle in and on Thursday 8th will be holding a Eucharist at 12 noon. He very much hopes to make this a regular service for everyone who works or lives at Hampton Court or is visiting the palace on the day.
