King's Chapel

King's Chapel is the principal church for the Armed Forces based in Gibraltar. Sunday Eucharist is held weekly at 10am. All welcome. Please note that this page is run by members of the congregation and NOT by the Naval Chaplaincy Team in Gibraltar.

King's Chapel is a small chapel in the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. It is located at the southern end of Main Street and adjoins the Governor of Gibraltar's residence, The Convent. What nowadays is King's Chapel was the first purpose built church to be constructed in Gibraltar. Originally part of a Franciscan friary, the chapel was built in the 1530s but was given to the Church of England by the British after the capture of Gibraltar in 1704. It was badly damaged in the late 18th century during the Great Siege of Gibraltar and in the explosion of an ammunition ship in Gibraltar harbour in 1951, but was restored on both occasions. From 1844 to 1990 it served as the principal church of the British Army in Gibraltar; since then it has been used by all three services of the British Armed Forces.

[10/20/20]   NOTICE


KING’S CHAPEL – THE WAY FORWARD

Against a background of change in the military community, and in order to provide a clear, viable and sustainable operating model for the King’s Chapel, the Chaplain of the Fleet and Archdeacon for the Royal Navy has delivered his direction on the way forward for the Chapel. The Chapel will remain open, with its primary role reflecting the military chaplaincy model of ministry and focussing predominantly in the military personnel and families in British Forces Gibraltar.

The plan for the King’s Chapel is that, as well as the annual major military events, the Command Chaplain will provide a monthly non-Eucharistic Ecumenical Sunday Service on the second Sunday of the month.

The Command Chaplain will also open the Chapel on a weekly basis and be present in situ on Wednesdays from 0930 to 1300.

The Dean of Gibraltar, who has been granted Permission to Officiate by the Archdeacon to the Royal Navy, will celebrate a monthly Anglican Holy Communion Service routinely on the fourth Sunday of the month.

It is an aspiration that military personnel, the congregation and other friends of King’s Chapel will wish to support the ministry of the Chapel by offering their services and volunteering to open and supervise the chapel on other weekdays. In addition, it is planned that a monthly coffee morning be held to bring together members of the military and civilian communities and to support raising money for military charities and other good causes.

King’s Chapel will continue to support the Ecumenical Lenten Lunches which are well attended by members of all churches on the Rock.

The Chaplain of the Fleet and Commander British Forces are aware of the historical, current and enduring importance of the King’s Chapel and wish the Chapel to continue to meet the needs of the military community and beyond. By establishing a new clear and robust model of operating, in a rapidly changing environment, the services and wider service of the King’s Chapel will remain. The Chapel will remain vibrant and dynamic and any assistance or suggestion from the congregation of Friends of King Chapel will be gratefully received.

Finally, given the current emergency health situation, Covid based restrictions may have a bearing on how we conduct or deliver Services at King’s Chapel.

Social distancing is the one thing that all of us can do to protect the most vulnerable in our community, and to slow the spreading of this disease to a manageable rate so that our medical services are not overwhelmed.

Keep safe everyone, and stick to the advice issued by the Director of Public Health, and the Government.
