Worship animates the daily rhythms of community life at Columbia Theological Seminary. We gather four times a week for chapel, and once a week for forum. 

Fall and Spring Chapel Times: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, we gather at 10:10am for chapel in either Harrington Center Chapel, Campbell Hall Chapel, or the BLC Courtyard. 
Forum Times: Wednesday, we gather for forum at 11:00 am. Forum typically convenes in the Ellis Room.

Summer and January Chapel Times: on Tuesday and Friday, we gather at 10:10 am for chapel in either Harrington Center Chapel or Campbell Hall Chapel. There is typically no Forum during these terms.

Check out the full chapel and forum schedule below. If you have questions, contact Dr. Rebecca Spurrier, Associate Dean of Worship Life and Assistant Professor of Worship.
