This is a very special community of worship in the heart of the City of Oakland where Christian generosity, love, and hospitality are practiced toward all people. 

In practicing these values, the church has been blessed with a membership that reflects the ethnic, economic, social, political, and generational diversity of the East Bay.   Our congregation welcomes all to full community, including our brothers and sisters who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, or questioning.  We support the right of all people to answer God’s call to ministry and believe that God blesses the celebration of love and covenant in all marriages, whether gay or straight.

Our building is historic, our theology progressive, and our diversity a rich blessing.  If you are looking for an opportunity to worship God as part of a loving and uniquely diverse church family, please come visit us. Sunday worship begins at 10:00 a.m. We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of each month in an intergenerational service, as well as on other special occasions.
