Open and inclusive Christian communities of, by, and for university students of all campuses in Manhattan and the Bronx. 


CanterburyNYC is a gathering of faith communities of the Episcopal Church focused on higher education throughout New York City. We emphasize, explore, and connect the spiritual dimension of educational communities in combination with its intellectual, physical, and vocational dimensions. Through worship, outreach, social gatherings, formal and informal conversations, and a generous amount of tea and coffee, we support each other in our lives, engaging life and God with wonder and a sense of humor.



Welcome. The Canterbury Club is a student organization at Columbia and Barnard centered around the Episcopal and Anglican Church. You are most welcome regardless of prior religious connection (or no connection), or any other part of your identity. LGBTQ or straight, US citizen or from overseas, Barnard or Columbia, please join us. We particularly welcome students searching for a deeper meaning to life, or just a friendly group that enjoys spending time together. Please join us for chapel service in St. Paul’s at 6:15 pm every Sunday of the semester, or lunch every Thursday at noon, room 101 of Earl Hall (ground floor).
