University Church continues the ecumenical work and the pursuit of truth envisioned by Colgate's founders. We are a passionate group of students dedicated to sustaining a strong Christian community on campus and to spreading God's Word at Colgate.

University Church

Colgate University had its genesis in the American Protestant tradition. We carry this heritage forward in the work and ecumenical worship of University Church, with gratitude for our founders, who saw no discrepancy between the life of faith and the pursuit of truth and learning. University Church strives to be a diverse Christian community of worship, sacrament, service, prayer, and intellectual engagement.

All activities and services are open to the entire Colgate community and we draw great encouragement from the vibrant and diverse religious life here. University Church also affirms and seeks to work together with other Protestant groups on the campus and Protestant churches in the community. LEARN MORE
