Duke Chapel is an interdenominational Christian community enlivened by the historic creeds of the church and formed by the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.
Chapel worship lives into its space, allowing the Gothic architecture of the Chapel building to shape the liturgy. The Chapel seeks to engage tradition thoughtfully, with both innovation and flexibility.
The Chapel strives to educate the whole person—head, heart, and hands—through sermons provided by the Chapel Dean and renowned visiting preachers, beautiful music, and creative ecumenical liturgy. As a community that cherishes the sacramental life of the church, communion is celebrated every week—at least twice a month as part of the main worship service, or after worship in the Memorial Chapel.
The ministry of Duke Chapel extends beyond the University and into the wider community through Bible studies, Sunday morning classes for all ages, mission trips, retreats, spiritual formation groups, fellowship activities, and a variety of service projects through the Congregation at Duke Chapel and PathWays student ministry.
Duke Chapel has one of the largest congregations of any university church in the country. All are welcome to join in weekly worship service held each Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. (Parking on campus is always free on Sunday mornings.)
Service video, sermons, and bulletins are available for each service and services are carried live on this site.
