College Chapel

chappelBuilt by Rev. John Chapman, the chapel was opened for worship in 1846. Modelled on the chapel of St. John’s College, Cambridge, the CMS College chapel adopts a gothic architectural style.  No other college in the state can boast of a chapel of this kind and of such age. The acoustics of the chapel make speech and song a joy to the ear. The elaborately carved pews, chairs and pulpit complete with candle stand and the wooden paneling in the sanctorum imparts a unique beauty to the chapel. The Chapel Bell is ensconced in the vestry and does not have a separate belfry. A passageway to the College House makes it possible for Principals to spend time in meditation here away from the toil of administration.
