The Protestant Chapel Community offers worship, social, educational and various spiritual experiences available to the Hamilton College community. Here is our mission statement.

Weekly Sunday Protestant Chapel Services

The Protestant Chapel Community gathers for worship every Sunday the college is in session at 6 pm in the chapel. We invite various musical guests to join us, and we share a meal together on the platform of the chapel in a service we call "Soul Food."

Musical Spirituality

We are blessed with the musical leadership of Bob Ford, jazz pianist who anchors our music program, inviting various singers and instrumentalists to enhance the spiritual quality of Dinner Vespers. We are hopeful about our Gospel Choir re-starting to give an outlet for a cappella spiritual singing. More...
