The Nave (seating area)

The Nave

The vast openness of the nave (seating area) with angled walls directing the eye toward the chancel and altar makes the Chapel especially welcoming. One of the largest collegiate chapels in the world, the nave is 193 feet long with angled columns of brick forming walls 58 feet high. The chapel will seat approximately 2,000 worshippers on the main level and in galleries on the second level. The pews, usually placed at angles facing the chancel, are moveable to accommodate special events.
