Gatherings and Worship Services

Wednesday Night Chapel and Worship Nights

The audience at a chapel service.Student-led Christian worship at Albion College Chapel (Chapel Brits student organization) takes place every Wednesday night of the academic year. While the music is primarily contemporary Christian, students keep many traditional aspects (e.g. Benediction, hymns, prayers) and weave together different musical genres (e.g. Gospel, praise songs from different countries). For students on the leadership team, Chapel is a great opportunity to develop ministry skills and discern calling. Albion College Chapel is a student-led program. All members of the Albion College community are welcome to attend and participate. Chapel Brits also facilitates other events, such as game nights and movie nights.
