Progressive & thoughtful Christianity


The Semester is now fully underway and our first Thursday service is this week at 6:30PM

Come to our beautiful art show focusing on issues of justice and the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe from the Guadalupe Art Program.

Don’t forget that our tumblr will start going live again soon so fun stuff to read there too!

University Chapel  (click for location) is the campus ministry site for the Episcopal and Lutheran Churches in Berkeley — but we’re more than that.  We strive to be a home for students and young adults who are looking for a way to connect sacred stories, meaningful rituals and contemporary life.

This is why we have created a space which is progressive and thoughtful in which to celebrate “ancient traditions, intellectual curiosity, and hopeful faith.”

We build our campus ministry around two meals:  communion and community.  The meal of Holy Communion (Eucharist) is a ritual and mystical meal in the sanctuary with bread and wine in which we discover the real presence of the Christ resurrected.  Our meal of community follows worship when we gather for sharing and friendship downstairs around a large table filled with great food!

Throughout the year we also have many other ways to connect you with friends, spiritual growth and meaning in a busy student life.

University Chapel openly celebrates and welcomes diversity of all sorts and affirms that queerness and sexual orientations are not a hindrance and can enhance living out the Christian life.
