10:00 a.m. there is an optional, small, quiet, sitting-in-a-chair meditation in our “upper room” that lasts about 25 minutes. All who can walk upstairs are welcome.
10:30 a.m. is the gathering in our main ADA-accessible, sanctuary space where we share worship time in a variety of ways. (Check out “What to Expect”.) There is “Worship and Wonder” time for children ages 6 to 12. We share the bread and cup of Communion with everyone who wants it every Sunday. (Our bread is always gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, and vegan. Our cup is non-alcoholic grape juice.)
11:30ish we share coffee, juice and various goodies, and hang out with each other.

We worship in a small (4,500 sq. ft.) church with an open sanctuary filled with daylight, an inner garden space, a soaring roof, and a permanent 26 foot Petit Chartres labyrinth on the floor.
On the west-facing side of the church are three one-bedroom apartments, built atop one another (each 600 sq.ft.). The top apartment has views of Elliott Bay. These apartments are leased to low-income tenants transitioning from homelessness.
We broke ground in the summer of 2015 and started worshipping in our new space in May of 2016.
Our address: 1322 S. Bayview St., Seattle, WA 98144
(on the corner of 14th and Bayview on N. Beacon Hill).
Our dream for our sacred space is an open, contemplative place—a small gem—a gathering place for prayer, liturgy and life’s celebrations, not only for the congregation but for the neighborhood we share.
