[This time of global pandemic has deeply reshaped our life as a worshiping

Christian community. We are currently meeting some weeks outdoors in-person and others on zoom.

Prior to Covid-19, this is what the shape of our gatherings looked like...

The tone of our weekly corporate gathering is very relaxed.  But though casual, our Sunday evenings together are intentionally and liturgically shaped. 

During the first half of our gathering (4–4:55pm) on any given week, we may eat together, dive into faith exploration, engage in a book study, go in depth with a missional partner, or pray and create art together. 

During the second half of our gathering (5:00–6:15pm), we come together for a time of artful, dialogical worship. This time always includes sitting in the round, honest conversation, confession and absolution, and celebrating an inclusive, open table Eucharist. Often, we employ local musicians whose artistic voices shape our time together. Always, we value incorporating diverse practices and voices into our communal dialogue around God at work in scripture and our world.

Join us for our weekly gathering from

4:30-6:00p.m. on Sundays at either 1209 N. Elizabeth St., Durham, NC 27701 or on zoom. 

In the fall of 2021, we will again meet in the education building of Elizabeth St. UMC, and enter through the ground floor entrance on the rear side (near the playground). There is parking beside the education building, along the street, and in an overflow lot across Elizabeth Street.
