At Peoples Church you can come as you are. Ours is a worshipful space for the peaceful exchange of ideas; concentrating on our commonalities, while appreciating our differences. Located in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood, one of the most diverse communities in the US, we are a gathering place for open-minded, liberal Christians, Humanists and all others.
At Peoples Church we embrace diversity and freedom of thought around our global village and down the block. The Peoples Church is deeply rooted in our neighborhood. Church members and volunteers can participate in community service: everything from serving a free lunch, to using your skills at the shelter housed in the church building, to advocacy for affordable housing issues, to participating in musical or theatrical events. The Peoples Church believes in working with others to build a better world, while fostering our spiritual and personal growth and practicing the golden rule. Join with us!
Peoples Church is affiliated with both the United Church of Christ and the Unitarian Universalist Association denominations. Both are non-creedal: we don’t ask you to change your beliefs to belong, nor do we ask you to subscribe to particular religious beliefs. Though the language of our worship is primarily Christian, our doors are open to all who seek to know the Divine.
We do ask you to treat others with respect and consideration, and do your best to sow seeds of love and compassion.
We invite you to explore and to grow spiritually in conversation with others.
