As I’ve mentioned before, some of the colleges are like little fortresses and unless you’re willing to shell out a couple of pounds to the porter, they aren’t letting you inside. However, there is one excpetion: let Jesus take the wheel. I may kid, but church is a really great way to see the inside of the schools, the chapel, and hear the choir! So, even if church isn’t your thing, consider checking Evensong out. Evensong is an evening prayer service (usually set to song) in the Anglican church. And for any Roman Catholics out there, it’s basically vespers.
I recently had the priviledge of attending Evensong in Christ Church and let me tell you, the chapel is gorgeous.
The service itself was also really beautiful. The choir was great and they were reading their chorale books to the light of actual wax candles. Imagine that in this day and age! “Beautiful” is really the only word I have to describe Evensong at Christ Church.
