I need a word to describe any community that is religious. For example, a Church Group or Temple Youth Group. Would Religous Institution be correct?

Edit: As single word would probably be impossible, 2 or 3 word phrases would also work.

    sect, cult, coven, order,... (just kidding). – Drew Dec 27 '16 at 22:41
  • Cannot think of any single word that conveys all off these permutations. Those two together do seem to convey what you want. – The Nate Dec 28 '16 at 0:05

Normally the word "community" would suffice. You can also use "church" in a multi-faith sense although many readers may identify that word specifically with Christianity.

  • That would be good, but the problem is I am using it in a context with other groups that are specified as a type of "Community" – Nate D Dec 28 '16 at 16:39
