The Canterbury House


We usually gather for Evening Prayer or Holy Eucharist at the Canterbury House's Prince of Peace Chapel or Christ Lutheran Church (located at 1300 Augustine Ave., 1 block across College Ave. from the front gates of the university) on Tuesdays at 5:30 PM, followed by dinner and a movie or discussion.  Check our Upcoming Events page or contact Fr. Brian for more information about where we're gathering each week.

 

We also share lunch and fellowship on Sundays at 12:30 PM (after Trinity's 11 AM worship service) at the Canterbury House.  Home-cooked meals are provided by the parishioners at Trinity Church.  We'd love for you to join us, and all are welcome!

 

The house was bought and refurbished with the aid of the Diocesan Missionary Society.  In order to honor creation, it was devised to be an environmentally responsible place.  A recycling bin is available in the kitchen, most of the furniture was re-purposed or bought from eco-friendly sellers, and all cleaning services and products used are green.

 

The Canterbury House was blessed by the Rt. Rev. David Jones, Suffragan Bishop of Virginia, on September 13, 2008.

The house is open daily from 8:00 AM - 11:00 PM, and students are free to hang out, watch tv or movies, study, take a nap, play in the game room, or spend some quiet time in the Chapel.  Coffee, tea, water, sodas, and snacks are available, and there is a microwave and toaster oven if you want to cook a light lunch.

One of the Canterbury House's rooms was converted into a chapel, the Prince of Peace Episcopal Chapel. In order to know more about it, please click on this link, or access it through the main menu on the left.

Fr. Brian Turner, the Canterbury Chaplain, doesn't have office hours at the Canterbury House but can be found in his office at Trinity Episcopal Church across the street.  He is available to meet with students for spiritual direction or counseling, or just to grab a coffee or lunch.  Contact Brian to make an appointment.
