Duke Chapel is a vibrant center of ecumenical Christian worship with a long—and living—tradition of faithful preaching and inspiring sacred music.
This tradition has come to include an active congregation for care and service and a vocational discernment program. In acts of worship beyond the walls of the Chapel, the Chapel community is sent out to pray with its hands and feet by seeking the welfare of Durham in partnership with nonprofits, churches, and neighborhoods, as well as by nurturing relationships across social, cultural, and political division.
Congregation at Duke Chapel
The Congregation at Duke University Chapel is the interdenominational church home for people who consider the Chapel to be their primary place of worship. The Sunday morning service at 11:00 a.m. draws worshipers from all areas of campus as well as from many of our neighboring communities. Recognizing that the Christian life is more than a Sunday morning experience, members of the Congregation long to deepen their relationships with God, with each other, and with their neighbors. Through education, mission, and fellowship the Congregation helps us to strengthen these precious relationships.
