A bit like church but not always

 


St Benet's is a bit like church, a bit like a coffee lounge, a lot like a home



The Chaplaincy
 is open throughout the day, Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.

There are three main areas in St Benet's:

  • The Chapel is a beautiful, peaceful space and is open for you to use at all times.
  • The Lounge is a wonderful place to relax, play games, chat, make yourself drinks, cereals and toast, even work. We refurbished over the summer and it now feels wonderfully homely.
  • The Quiet Room, a former library, with desks to work at or play board games on. The Quiet Room is also available to book out as a meeting room. For more information and bookings please contact Revd Ella Sharples via email e.sharples@qmul.ac.uk.
 
We have a regular pattern of daily prayer at St Benet's, to which anyone is welcome. The services are simple and unscary, everything is written down on the service sheet. 
 
Unfortunately due to COVID-19 our sevices are currently postponed.
 
Rev. Sharples has provided the followong resources to help during these dificult times.
