Worship at Union Chapel

Our worship draws from different church traditions, spirituality and the arts.

  • Prayerful atmosphere for spiritual nourishment and growth
  • Reflections on contemporary issues in the light of the Bible
  • Music drawn from Classical, Jazz, Gospel, contemporary worship, and traditional hymns

Communion Service takes place on the first Sunday of each month.

We observe social distancing procedures. All are welcome.

Music in worship

The architecture of Union Chapel sought to enhance the great tradition of non-conformist hymn singing.  Famously, the most well-known of Union Chapel’s Ministers, Rev Henry Allon required his congregation not only to attend on a Sunday but also to meet on a Thursday evening to rehearse the singing.  They would even sing the Hallelujah Chorus as a congregation!

Famous hymn-writers W.H. Monk (Abide with me) and H.J. Gauntlet (Once in royal David’s City) were involved in the design of our world-famous Henry Willis organ.

We continue this tradition today.  Although we cannot match over a thousand people singing together at a Sunday evening service, we promote music of high quality in our services. 

We have an excellent team of musicians who regularly perform led by Masashi Fujimoto. Claudina Edwards, Ben Comeau, Ed Kemp-Luck are also regular artists.
