Worship and Communion, Sundays at 5pm
Every week we gather, hold our gratitude and our needs before God in prayer, sing our praise, and share Communion. Our service is a traditional liturgy presented in an informal, friendly style. Alongside the Gospel reading, we always include a reading from another world religion to facilitate understanding and healing among all people of faith. Our music ranges from interfaith chants to folk to roots rock, incorporating guitar, piano, mandolin, fiddle, and organ. Everyone is welcome to take communion, regardless of one’s religion.

Labyrinth Walk with Interfaith Chants—Suspended until further notice
At our monthly Interfaith Labyrinth Walk, we light our labyrinth with 97 candles, and as our band plays chants from various world religions. This is a free-form service, with few words spoken, and lots of freedom as we invite people to pray, sing, meditate, or walk the labyrinth. The Labyrinth walk is held on the last Friday of every month, from January through October (we take November and December off). In the Labyrinth Hall.
Prayer Meeting, 1st Wednesdays at 7pm
Join us for an intimate time of prayer as we check in on what is happening in our lives and what we need prayer for. Then we pray for each other, holding one another and our needs before God. In the parish office.
Gnostic Gospels Study, 2nd Wednesdays at 7pm
The gnostic scriptures were lost for nearly two thousand years. Discovered less than a century ago, they reveal a mystical understanding of Jesus that is profound and life-changing. Join us as we read through and discuss the Gnostic Gospel of Philip.
Reading the Mystics, 3rd Wednesdays at 7pm
Every month we dive into a classic of Western mystical literature, and discuss its imagery, symbolism, and meaning. This group meets in a private home at 1326 Milvia Street, Apartment C, Berkeley CA 94709.
Praying the Rosary, 4th Wednesdays at 7pm
What are liberal Protestants doing praying the rosary? Getting in touch with the divine feminine, of course! Join us as we appeal to the heart of Mary and pray through the rosary together.
Gregorian Chant Choir—Suspended until further notice
Have you ever wanted to learn how to sing Gregorian chant? This drop-in choir will teach you how to sing this contemplative, beautiful style of prayer. No experience necessary. The Cantemus Gregorian Chant choir rehearses in the church office weekly, at 7:30pm.
