Denominations and Religious Organizations
In addition to Department of Religion programs, Denominational Houses and religious organizations at Chautauqua Institution offer religious services, lectures, and low-cost housing options during the nine-week summer assembly season.
The term “denomination” in CHQ usage is a very inclusive term meaning an institutional faith organization. The 15 denominations at CHQ include the Baha’i Faith, Baptist, Catholic, Christian Science, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Episcopal, Chabad-Lubavitch Community (Orthodox Jewish), Hebrew Congregation (Reform Jewish), Lutheran, Presbyterian, the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker), United Church of Christ (UCC), United Methodist, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship(UU), and Unity.
Twelve of these denominations have Denominational Houses on the grounds: Baptist, Catholic, Christian Science, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Episcopal, Chabad-Lubavitch Community (Orthodox Jewish), Lutheran, Presbyterian, the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker), United Church of Christ (UCC), United Methodist, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship(UU).
The Everett Jewish Life Center is inclusive of all Branches of Judaism. All Denominational Houses are open to all.
Religious organizations (not denominations) at CHQ that offer religious services, programming and/or housing include the International Order of the King’s Daughters and Sons (IOKDS), Chautauqua Christian Fellowship (CCF), and the Ecumenical Community of Chautauqua (ECOC).
