Sundays 11am Sung Eucharist
The Christian community at the Grosvenor Chapel is a diverse group of people united by our common discipleship of the Lord. Most of us come here because we live here or have been brought by friends.
We are a mixed bunch of old and young, rich and poor, black and white, residents and visitors, married and single, gay and straight. Everybody, in other words, is wanted and everybody is welcomed.
We are joined many Sundays by visitors from overseas, especially the United States of America, with whom the Chapel has a special connection, as in previous years the nearest Episcopal Church to the American Embassy, and as the place of worship for the United States Armed forces under General Eisenhower during World War II.
Why do we meet?
We meet every Sunday to celebrate the Resurrection of the Lord in the unbroken tradition of the Church, by reading and meditating on the Scriptures and sharing the Eucharist meal.
Our worship is characterised by:
Celebration of Scripture
Every year we read through one of the Gospels. Sermons follow related themes designed to connect Scripture to our everyday lives.
We gather round the Lord’s table every Sunday to become his body of Christ in the world, that this may be transformed in the love of God.
Celebration of life
We give thanks to God through the beauty of music, prayer, liturgy, silence and symbol. By being drawn into the mystery of God, we celebrate our whole lives and renew them in the power of the Holy Spirit.
What do we stand for?
We seek to be a “Christian Community in the liberal catholic tradition of the Church, standing as a beacon of faith in the heart of Mayfair”.
By liberal we essentially mean generous, as God is generous to us, and open to new ideas and challenges of proclaiming the teachings of Christ today.
By Catholic we mean a faith marked by wholeness in our lives and in our faith; unity with the rest of the Christian Church, and a belief which is embracing, not narrow - inclusive, not exclusive.
And we seek to respond to God in our whole being: body, mind, emotions, through worship, life, intellect and spirit as the way to health and wholeness.
We seek to be at the “heart of Mayfair”. We wish to offer faith and hope and a renewed call to a spiritual vision of life and the earth, as we discover this in the life and teaching of the Lord.
To this end:
The Chapel is open to visitors Monday to Friday from 9am to 5 pm for people to pray, or simply enjoy some peace and quiet in a holy space.
Personal and pastoral contacts are established to provide help and spiritual counselling for individuals.
Spirituality courses and studies are run regularly throughout the year to enable people to discover a spiritual vision of their lives.
Musical recitals, concerts and other cultural events take place during the year, meeting a range of interests.
We celebrate the lives of the people in the community through baptisms, weddings, memorial services and other occasions.
