What We Do

We’re a bunch of sinners tinkering with what it means to bake a neighborhood church from scratch in the South Wedge area of Rochester, New York. The liturgy – “work of the people”  centered on Word and Sacrament – is at the heart of our participatory rhythm of life together. We seek to be a community of producers, contributing to the creative life of our place on earth, rather than consumers, merely taking from it.

Who We Are

We are beloved children of God, and no one can tell us otherwise.  We are proud forgiven sinners, neither ashamed of our brokenness, nor obsessed with our failures, boasting only in the foolishness of the Cross of Christ.  We strive to be practitioners of resurrection, seekers of wonder, and daredevils of delight.  

Our vocations are many: we are teachers, social workers, scientists, nurses, mercenaries, veterans, addicts, artists, activists, entrepeneurs, programmers, unemployed, underemployed and overemployed too. We are gay, straight, old, young, single, married, parents, children, the un-churched, re-churched, non-churched, anti-church, and everything in between. We are the church in this place. Because the Gospel is for us, and for all.
