Church in Progress aims to create spaces to connect with God and with one another.
All Church in Progress events are open to all – no matter how you identify or what your age or status might be. ALL are welcome and affirmed. Keep scrolling down the end of the page for details of events you can come along to.
Due to the spread of COVID-19 Church in Progress is ramping up it’s online presence. Sadly, many of the face-to-face gatherings you see below may have to be cancelled. The best way to check if they are going ahead is to look at the facebook page.
Church in Progress tries not to do things just because they have always been done that way. It’s a group of people that are finding ways to connect faith with everyday life. It’s a place in which noisy kids are celebrated and there’s a welcome for everyone, no matter what their belief system or status is.
Are you someone that …
… wants to find out what a being a follower of Jesus looks like
… want to be part of a faith community but not sure about ‘church’
… is searching for a church that is fully GLBTQI affirming
… you have questions about God or spiritual stuff and want to discuss them
… looking for a community of people that invest time in social justice issues
Well, Church in Progress could be just the thing you are looking for!
Church in Progress does not own a building so it’s recommended that you check the facebook events page just in case there are last minute changes to the venue. You can RSVP there too and join in the ongoing conversations. PLUS, there are last minute events that pop up!
