We are a ministry to University of Michigan students, faculty and staff, sponsored by the Episcopal Diocese of Michigan.
If you are exploring your faith, creating your ethic, looking for a safe place to ask hard questions, need a welcoming and open community, like new and interesting art and music, or are wondering how you can make a difference in the world, then Canterbury House is ready for you. The atmosphere is relaxed, the worship is informal and accessible, and the teapot is on the stove.
On Sunday evenings at 5 p.m. we offer Jazz Masses with internationally recognized musicians, and a very different perspective on the world, followed by lots of wonderful (free) food. On Wednesday evenings at 5:30 p.m. join us for Solemn Evensong or a Taizé service (if you don’t know what that is, come find out!). During the week we offer an open door, a (usually) quiet space, and a listening ear, as well as discussion groups, Bible studies, and social activities. We are committed to engagement with all of creation, so here you will also find social activism on behalf of the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed.
Come and be involved, be challenged, be fed, be comforted, or just be! We are happy to see you.
