An Episcopal Center for Learning & Discipleship

Bexley in Columbus

Bexley Hall sits on the campus of Trinity Lutheran Seminary, adjacent to Capital University, in Bexley, Ohio, a small suburban village on the eastern edge of Columbus. The smallest residential seminary in the Episcopal Church, it offers a compelling alternative to larger institutions, thanks to the close-knit community formed by students and faculty, the ecumenical environment and an outstanding quality of life.

Worship opportunities abound at Bexley. Services are planned by students and open to the community. The primary service each day is the 10 a. m. chapel gathering, which alternates between the Lutheran and Anglican traditions, and includes a Wednesday Eucharist. Morning and Evening Prayer are offered almost every day, and there is an additional Eucharist on Tuesday evening and Thursday morning before classes. In addition, the entire Bexley Hall community participates in retreats each year where we set aside the busyness of daily life to focus on the work of the Spirit. 

Students from Bexley and Trinity learn together, worship together, and relax together, meeting for meals, drinks and theological discussions that last until all hours of the night. The highlight of community life is the weekly Bexley Hall Common Meal, which is prepared and served by Bexley students and faculty every Thursday night to everyone at both Trinity and Bexley.

Through its relationship with Capital University, Bexley offers the academic resources and amenities of a larger institution. Its students have access to Capital’s library, gym, indoor track and weight room.
