Edgerton House Episcopal Campus Ministry

Group Description

We are a community of friends, seeking meaning and purpose in our lives and learning to follow in the Way of Jesus. Edgerton House, fondly known as the Edge, is our home, a safe and constant source of love, spiritual depth and inspiration in our often isolating and chaotic lives. Here we gather to break bread with one another, listen to stories, reflect on our lives, pray and seek to discover God's voice in all things.

We believe that growing in faith is a life-long struggle, and we value this safe space to be honest with our doubts and questions. We bring both our hearts and minds to grapple with the religious, moral, ethical and social issues of our time. We strive to be an open community, welcoming all people as Christ and inviting them to share their unique gifts and insights, that we might learn together.

Our faith sends us outward to cross the walls that divide people on campus and in our wider community, to listen and learn from those we serve. These experiences help us imagine possibilities for a world transformed and give us hope to live in expectation of the New Creation and to work for justice, freedom and peace. We look to the witness of faithful people in all times and places for guidance on our journey.

Episcopal Campus Ministers: The Rev Dr Guy J.D Collins, Rev. Christopher Gregorio

The Kelsey Community

The Kelsey Community is the newest addition to Edgerton House, an intentional residential community in which current Dartmouth undergraduates live, work and play together. Each term the residents construct a "Rule of Life" in which they affirm a shared commitment to participate together in worship, reflection and fellowship. Students agree to a covenant before taking up residence in which they commit to working to create community together. Any current Dartmouth student may apply to join The Kelsey Community, regardless of their religious beliefs.


Edgerton House Episcopal Campus Ministry, 14 School St., is open 24/7 for use by all Dartmouth students.

Small groups meet weekly for reflection on the Bible, our lives, and spiritual practices, helping to connect Christian tradition to life on campus.

The Edge is located at 14 School Street. Starting at Collis, walk west on Wheelock Street (toward the river) and take the first left onto School Street. We're on the left at the end of the second block, just before the parking garage. Look for a big brick and white house with a red door. It only takes a couple of minutes to walk here from the Green.
