All residents and visitors to Weekapaug are welcome to attend services at the Chapel. The Chapel and its grounds are maintained through generous contributions and gifts. 


The Weekapaug Chapel Society was founded on August 4, 1906 to erect and maintain a chapel at Weekapaug for Christian worship during the summer months for all denominations. The present building was completed and dedicated in 1917.  The Chapel Society members include anyone who attends and contributes to the Chapel. 


The Chapel has a long history of opening its doors for community speakers, events and programs such as Theatre Camp.  Volunteers support the Chapel and its work in the community.  Please contact any of the Trustees to learn how you can help.
