Episcopal Campus Ministries at VCU
Welcome VCU Students!
Visit us at:
We invite you to worship with us at Grace and Holy Trinity Church on Sunday mornings. There’s usually an Episcopal Campus Ministry guide to help you during the service.
All services have a unique style. If you aren’t sure which one to attend, please just come at a convenient time for you.
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive communion at any of the Eucharistic services. You do not have to be an Episcopalian to receive communion. If you do not wish to receive communion, you can come forward and request a blessing from the priest.
Students are invited to live into their faith, regardless of their religious tradition, by helping the community of Episcopal Campus Ministry at VCU to live into their faith.
At our Wednesday lunch, we gather to offer a place to share about where we live and to serve by feeding the hungry, offering water to the thirsty, visiting the lonely, and encouraging the imprisoned. You do not need to be an Episcopalian, a Christian or even religious to join this conversation — all are welcome at the table.
During Spring 2019 we:
- Discussed how “God Says Sex is Good” in a 4-week session lead by Leslie Choplin D. Ed. Min.
- Entered into “The Way of Love” in a Lenten Study with The Pace Center (United Methodists) and Ukirk RVA (PCUSA)
- Held a Book Bag Drive for Red Door Ministry.
Between 9:00 a.m. and noon, The Rev. Kim Reinholz is on campus for coloring and conversation in the Commons. It’s not only a chance to add a little vibrancy to a sometimes dreary world, but also an opportunity to talk about anything — from concerns about personal and spiritual life to pop culture or politics. It’s a safe space to ask questions or just center ourselves at the table for a fun activity.
We invite students to join us for Red Door Ministries. For more information about how to get involved, visit the Red Door page.
We love having students volunteer, and we encourage you to sign up to help. Come learn cooking skills and work with our team of dedicated volunteers to feed between 100 and 150 people most weeks. This is an open community meal for anyone in the greater Richmond area who wants to join us.
Living your faith

As Christians, we promise at baptism to:
- Continue in the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayers.
- Persevere in resisting evil, and when we fall into sin, repenting and returning to the Lord.
- Proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.
- Seek and serve Christ in all persons loving our neighbors as ourselves.
- Strive for justice and peace among all people and respect the dignity of every human being.
