Sermons

 

Each term, the College is honoured to host distinguished and thought-provoking guest preachers, from Oxford and across the country. Recent preachers have included two Archbishops of York; the Revd Rose Hudson Wilkin, then Chaplain to the House of Commons and now the first black woman to be a Bishop in the Church of England; and poet and feminist theologian the Revd Dr Rachel Mann. Beyond the Church of England, we've also welcomed Fr Timothy Radcliffe OP, former leader of the Dominican order, and Quaker peace worker Simon Fisher. Once a year, the College hosts the University Sermon on the Trinity.

Sermons from Michaelmas Term 2020.

Video services from Trinity Term 2020 can be found on the Virtual Chapel page.
