Leavers’ service

Submitted on 24 June 2020

June 24th would have been the start of graduation ceremonies across Cambridge; and that night at Selwyn we’d have been holding our graduands’ dinner. How we wish that were possible – and we look forward to the day when it will happen. We are hoping this will be in the next academic year.

Another key part of the events is the Leavers’ service in chapel; and we're delighted that we can at least offer this online. It’s intended for people of all faiths and none, as one of the ways in which the community joins together for the celebrations ahead. This year, for the first time, there are prayers from the Jewish and Islamic traditions as well as the Christian ones.

Everyone is welcome to watch too, as part of our tribute to the students who have contributed so much to the college in the last three or four years. Some of their photos appear at the end of the video.
