Duke Chapel is an interdenominational Christian community 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. Worship at the Chapel thoughtfully engages tradition with innovation and flexibility.
The Chapel lives into its mission, “Keeping the heart of the University listening to the heart of God,” by striving to educate the whole person—head, heart, and hands—through engaging sermons provided by the Chapel Dean and renowned visiting preachers, beautiful music, and creative ecumenical liturgy. 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.
Bulletins and sermons are available for each service and services are carried live on this site.
