Religious and Spiritual Life Services

There is a place for everyone.

The rich and varied multifaith communities in the Department of Religious and Spiritual Life seek to care for the many threads of spiritual life at the Academy (including those with no formal religious or spiritual affiliation).

Our adult advisers and members are involved and supportive all around campus, but Phillips Church is the central hub for our life together. The downstairs space is warm, vibrant, and inviting to all who may wish to enter. Your big questions are welcome at Phillips Church no matter who you are or where you are on your Exonian journey.
Students seeking detailed information on gathering should consult Exeter Connect or email the advisers below.
