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 7:00 pm on Sundays and while the permanent gathering space, the Chapel of St. William in Copley Hall is being renovated the community meets at Holy Trinity Church. 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 in small group gatherings and Bible study. These begin with a three-week program at the start of the year called Starting Point.
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.
