Renewing the Chapel

Bringing HMC to a global audience

The chapel was inaugurated in 1893 and is renowned for its stained-glass windows by the Pre-Raphaelite artists Sir Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris, as well as its ornate wood carvings and organ, which was painted by Morris and Co. The stained-glass windows on the north wall of the chapel that depict the Six Days of Creation, were donated by James and Isabella Arlosh in memory of their son Godfrey.

The Chapel is our principal event space, hosting talks, concerts, lectures and weddings as well as religious services.

We want to ensure it continues to serve the College community by:

  • Installing a new, flexible sound system to support different kinds of events;
  • Installing permanent live-streaming equipment so we can include alumni and friends across the globe in major College events;
  • Insulating the roof cavity to reduce heat loss and save energy.

To make this project a reality, we need to raise £35,000.

Alumnus Aron D'Souza (2009, Jurisprudence) has challenged his fellow alumni with a 1-1 match to £10,000!
