Schwan Memorial Chapel

Spirituality is the central focus of Gurukul. It aims at genuine and authentic spiritual formation as much as personal, academic and ministerial formations. The chapel continues to be the centre of life in Gurukul. It is a place of personal meditation, daily morning worship, midweek community worship, Sunday evening Community Worship, evening prayers in the halls of residence, retreats – at the beginning of each semester, and on Ash Wednesday are times to strengthen our spiritual formation. Efforts are made to create awareness in the worshippers of the need to relate one’s faith to the socio-economic, political, and cultural realities of today.

Gurukul chapel is an outstanding example of indigenous architecture. It is built in the form of a Mandapam. The altar is constructed as a Sumaithangi to symbolise Christ’s call to all people to place their burden on Him. It is a memorial gift of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church of Toledo, Ohio in honour of Dr. C. D. Schwan, a pastor at the congregation in Toledo and later lifelong missionary in the South Andhra Lutheran Church.

Mission Statement

Gurukul is an ecumenical theological community for communicating the liberative Gospel of Jesus Christ by training and empowering the community of God's people towards Peace, Justice and Integrity of God's Creation
