During the Lent Term, the Chapel will support the work of the Cambridge Churches Homelessness Project (CCHP), a local volunteer project of Cambridge churches to provide dinner and a place to sleep in church buildings for rough sleepers in Cambridge in winter. Former Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rt Rev Dr Rowan Williams, is patron. We will not collect money directly at the door, but encourage you to make a personal donation to support them online here: Thank you.
