All Are Welcome Here
The Canterbury Fellowship is the worshipping congregation of
the Episcopal Campus Ministry at Indiana University and Canterbury House.
The mission of Canterbury Fellowship within the Episcopal Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
We pursue this mission in many different and complementary ways. We pray, worship, and proclaim the Gospel. We also promote justice, equality, inclusion, peace, love, critical thinking and acting as agents of change in our world.
At Canterbury, all can find rest, healing and faith-filled community where they are encouraged to be themselves, to be inquisitive or to just simply be. Many find in the life of a university that they begin to wonder about their beliefs and values. Some may have found it hard to be active in a faith community while earnestly making new inquiries and seeking new perspectives or practices. Canterbury welcomes seekers who want to explore faith in a safe place. We love questions about faith; we prefer to have questions that don’t have answers than to have answers that cannot be questioned. Those who feel the Church has not valued their inquiring are especially welcome, wanted and invited to be among us.
It is equally vital to us that Canterbury is assertively open and affirming of our LGBTQIA+ siblings. Canterbury works industriously to ensure that students, faculty, and staff know they have a safe place and loving people on campus where they can be LGBTQIA+ and Christian. Our God loves us exactly as we are and we live out that love as best we can, valuing one another deeply for all of who they are, and all they seek to become.
