The elliptical Bishop Edward King Chapel, named in honour of Bishop Edward King, is sited in the grounds of Ripon College Cuddesdon, a Church of England theological college. The chapel is a place of worship for an order of nuns, the Sisters of the Communities of St John Baptist and the Good Shepherd and for the 150 students training for ordained ministry.[1]

The chapel was designed by Niall McLaughlin Architects and was shortlisted for the Stirling Prize in 2013, in which it was runner-up.[2][3]
