80 S. 5th Street, San Jose, CA
We are a new progressive church gathering in downtown San Jose. Join us in the historic sanctuary of the First Christian Church of San Jose behind City Hall as we launch weekly gatherings. We will have music, silence, engaged prayer, as well as inspiring messages and authentic connection. We are a community of progressive Christians, agnostics, spiritual independents and other people of conscience. We are bound together not by belief, but by a shared commitment to grow in love.
Is it kid-friendly? We welcome children to participate as they feel moved. We start the gathering as a whole group and after some gathering time, those children who are interested will be offered supervised, multi-sensory activities in the room next to the sanctuary. Children of all abilities are welcome.
Who is welcome? No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here! And we also know we are not for everyone, but we are committed to extending and receiving extravagant hospitality and welcome. We invite into the full life of our community those of every age, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic and educational background, mental and physical ability, race and nationality. We are progressive Christians, agnostics, spiritual independents and other people of conscience who want to live with purpose and joy in a community rooted in love. We welcome all who desire to grow in love to claim this community as a spiritual home.
How can I get there and/or where can I park? The church is 1.2 miles from the Cal-train Diridon station. Metered treet parking is free on Sundays or you can use the parking lot behind the church, as long as you don't park in the spots labeled Westwood.
