The earliest Christ-followers met together in homes to do life and church together. It was a vibrant, interactive community where everyone had a role to play.

At The Gathering, we want to get back to this original vision.

We believe that church is not only about sitting in rows on Sundays while some person preaches from a stage. We believe it’s also about sitting in circles and turning our chairs inward to face each other. Only then can we take off our masks and do the real work of building authentic, life-changing relationships.

At the Gathering, we are committed to simplifying life. And because of that, we don’t often offer many mid-week programs and events. Instead, we want people to connect in community and to build spiritual friendships.

And that’s what Home Church is all about; Experiencing the kind of spiritual growth and life change that can only happen in community. So, if you’re not already in a Home Church, take the next step and try one out this week!

Each week during the school year,

different groups of people from The Gathering meet in homes to live out this vision, taking their faith to a deeper level in community.
