The Chapel at Rydal Hall
Rydal Hall Chapel was originally the study of the house and the bevelled glass doors give a clue to this by opening straight on to the terrace. Since the diocese have used Rydal Hall this room has been the chapel.
It is perfectly positioned, so as to be at the heart of everything that happens. Opening out onto the entrance hall, it is a visible sign of the Christian basis on which hospitality is offered. For example, we pass the Chapel en route to the dining room, which in itself is a reminder of the need for spiritual as well as physical sustenance. Guests and our staff Community enter this ‘thin place’ for prayer throughout the day. It is a quiet space and a well for all who are spiritually thirsty. The Chapel is the ‘heartbeat of Rydal Hall’.
Our Chaplain, David Wilmot can be available by prior arrangement to assist groups and individuals with Worship and Spiritual Direction. Details of the weekly pattern of Services are posted in Reception. The Blessed Sacrament is Reserved in the Chapel.
