About Us

The Chapel of St Peter and St Paul is a welcoming and inclusive Christian community, worshipping God in a beautiful building with inspiring music and liturgies from the Book of Common Prayer (1662). The renowned Chapel Choir is directed by Dr Ralph Allwood MBE and consists mainly of students from our site partner, the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

The Chapel was built in 1752, part of Sir Christopher Wren's original design for the Royal Hospital for Seamen. Following a disastrous fire, it was redecorated in 1779 by James ‘Athenian’ Stuart in the Greek Revival style and today constitutes a stunning example of a complete neoclassical interior.

The Chapel is open daily from 10.00am to 5.00pm to everyone, regardless of tradition or background. To learn more about our mission and ministry or to receive pastoral support, please contact the Chaplain.
