On Sundays at 11:00 a.m., join us in worship that offers stirring preaching, inspiring sacred music, and faithful prayer. 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.
