This year, the traditional University Carol Service will be held in Bath Abbey. With a selection of readings read by staff and students and carols sung by the University Chamber Choir, the service will be led by the University Chaplain Revd Canon Nigel Rawlinson.

In light of the ongoing coronavirus situation, and after discussions between the Chaplaincy and the University, it has been decided that the University Carol Service should be moved online. The service will now be livestreamed to at 7.30pm on Wednesday, 15 December. The order of service is available at

You will see that there will be some members of the University present who are there as supporters of the choir and readers. Full Covid safety guidelines are being followed.

We are working together to stay safe in these uncertain times. The Chaplaincy wish you a very happy Christmas and look forward to the New Year.
