St. Augustine’s is a vibrant space that welcomes students, groups associated with Vanderbilt University, Chapel attendees, and guests from the wider community to host meetings, celebrations, and services at our A-frame Chapel.
Part of St. Augustine's mission is to serve the Vanderbilt University students, faculty, staff and wider community. We welcome groups to use our facility for meetings, events, and celebrations. For example, during the academic year the Chapel welcomes:
Visiting Mission Groups
Student groups, traveling from out of town (or even across town) to offer mission work or visit the Vanderbilt campus, may stay overnight with prior arrangements. The number of people who can be accommodated totals 15. In the past, we've been visited by several groups including Wartburg College in Waverly, IA; and the Urban Mission youth group from Nashville's Christ Church Cathedral.
