Worship at Union is expressed in ways as diverse as the city that surrounds it. From the traditional to the innovative, Union’s worship answers the creative and spiritual inspirations of the community. We gather Monday to Thursday at noon for community chapel led by students, faculty, and guest preachers and artists. Groups also meet throughout the week in Lampman chapel for Zen meditation, sung vespers, prayer, spiritual direction, and many other opportunities for worship and spiritual formation.
The very design of James Memorial Chapel embodies Union’s commitment to expressive flexibility—without fixed pews or a permanent pulpit, the space is fundamentally adaptable. Supported by the Director of Worship and student Chapel Ministers, James Chapel is the heart of Union worship and the physical manifestation of Union’s commitment to freedom of—and through—faith.
