Monty Sharma

Chapel Director

Monty (Utkarsh) Sharma is Director of Somerville’s religiously unaffiliated Chapel, a unique space in Oxford for people of all faiths and none.

True to its foundation, the College does not have a Chaplain, but a ‘Chapel Director’ who coordinates events and services but does not show denominational affiliation. In keeping with the College’s liberal and inclusive tradition, the Chapel hosts speakers with a range of perspectives. Past invited speakers include Hindu priests, Muslim clerics, Rabbis, authors, Christian bishops, Daoist thinkers, atheist philosophers and many others besides.

If you have any queries about the Chapel’s history and events, or which to hold you wedding, christening or other ceremony in the space, please contact Monty using the email address supplied.
