From its beginning in the eighteenth century, Georgetown University has welcomed Protestant Christian students into its community. The Protestant Ministry staff and student leaders serve this diverse community, honoring the religious traditions of its members, while affirming their oneness in Christ. The Protestant Ministry aims to make Georgetown a place where you can explore and grow in your faith life, connect with others, and share your gifts with the greater community.

The Protestant Community worships together at 5:30pm on Sundays at the Chapel of St. William in Copley Hall. The service is supported by the Georgetown University Gospel Choir and includes a diversity of music from Gospel and traditional hymns to modern Christian selections. Each Sunday, the community gathers in praise, prayer, the hearing and proclamation of the Gospel, and in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

Beyond the primary Sunday gathering, the community has further opportunities to grow in their faith through worship.

  • Open Table, a coffeehouse-type worship experience in partnership with Chi Alpha, is on Wednesdays at 8pm in the Chapel of St. William.
  • A Traditional Eucharistic Service is on Thursdays at 5:30pm in the Chapel of St. William. This service is in partnership with the Georgetown Episcopal community.

Denominational worship spaces can also be found in the nearby area. The various student groups and Affiliated Ministries further offer an array of opportunities for students to become involved in particular communities.

“College students need spaces for silence and reflection, friendly ears for listening, peers for solidarity, and friends who push them to be better every day. Protestant Ministry provides a sanctuary, but also a call to renewal, to dedication to God and others." Brian Keston, C'10
