More than just a building, the Chapel will serve as the centerpiece of campus life, providing a unifying presence and furthering spiritual life in the Regent and CBN community. As a venue for convocations, commencements, weddings and baptisms, as well as for individual reflection and prayer, the Chapel will be a special place for people to experience the presence of God.
Reflecting the classic Georgian architecture of the campus, this distinctive physical structure will be a central place of connectivity for Regent's alumni, students, faculty and staff, both today and for future generations. The Chapel will also provide a pulpit for our many ministerial students to gain practical experience while completing their studies at the School of Divinity.
Inspired by St. Martin-in-the-Fields—a London church with medieval roots that represents, for many, the archetypal church design—the 22,164 sq. ft. building will feature a 1,000-seat sanctuary to comfortably house gatherings for worship and other events. A smaller prayer room will remain open around the clock so individuals and small groups can hold Bible studies and devotions. In addition, a beautiful prayer garden with an exquisite fountain will offer individuals a welcome respite for intercession and reflection.
