Special services

Celebration and thanksgiving are the main themes of special services held in the Chapel. Many of our partners in our City Wide Ministry wish to mark important events and anniversaries with a special service in the comfortably sized chapel.

Recently the Standard of the Bristol Burma Star Association was laid up in the Chapel, marking the long association as the life of the Burma Star draws to a natural close.

The old colours of the Avon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service are rested in the Chapel and their new colours dedicated.

The Commonwealth Society have made the Chapel their spiritual home and attend worship on Commonwealth Day to hear the Queen's Message to the Commonwealth.

Red Maids School was the first Girls' School in England, and on the anniversary of John Witson, their Founder, the Chaplain of the Lord Mayor's Chapel conducts the very special service in the crypt of St Nicholas' Church.

QEH School, founded in the precincts of the Hospital of St. Mark, send a choir to sing at the worship before every full Council meeting.

Those allowed to use the chapel for marriage blessing and baptism are those associated with the Chapel, either personally or through membership of corporate bodies with links to the Chapel.
