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 Chautauqua Season.
The term “denomination” in Chautauqua usage is a very inclusive term meaning an institutional faith organization. The 16 denominations at Chautauqua 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, Metropolitan Community Fellowship, Presbyterian, the Religious Society of Friends (Quaker), United Church of Christ (UCC), United Methodist, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship(UU) and Unity. Eleven of these denominations have Denominational Houses on the grounds.
Religious organizations (not denominations) at Chautauqua 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).
