Welcome to Canterbury Fellowship, the student ministry at St. Paul's Memorial Church in Charlottesville, Virginia! Canterbury at St. Paul’s welcomes Episcopalians and anyone else interested in a relaxed, inclusive, non- judgmental fellowship for Christians, seekers, and skeptics. We pray, discuss, eat, play, hike, garden, and participate in community service together, exploring the intersections of Christian faith and identity with student and professional life. Please join us!
Whether you are a new or returning student, we hope that you will find Canterbury Fellowship and St. Paul's Memorial Church to be a supportive and loving community during your time at the University. There is a lot going on with Canterbury this year and students also get involved in all aspects of church life, so we encourage you to explore the community and find your place with us!
