Held year-round amid the beautiful, soaring architecture of Duke Chapel, this interdenominational Christian service is characterized by vibrant faith, intellectual depth, diverse cultural expressions, and a welcoming community. The acclaimed Duke University Chapel Choir and Chapel organists lead the music, supplemented by student chamber groups, professional instrumentalists, and visiting artists.

Parking is available at that address in the Bryan Center Garage at 125 Science Drive with ADA parking in the adjacent Bryan Center Surface Lot. *** Receive a pass for free parking on Sunday mornings at the visitor desk inside the Chapel.***
