Building community on our spiritual journey through 21st century San Francisco
We are a progressive and welcoming spiritual community in a changing city and neighborhood. We weave authentic Christian practices together with ancient spiritual practices and progressive theology to explore what it means to be a Christian in today’s San Francisco. We gather on Sundays and Wednesdays to use authentic Christian spiritual practices, helping to heal ourselves and the world around us. For a quick summary of coming services and events, please see our Facebook events page and the Cyprian’s Center’s Facebook events page.
What we believe
We believe it is time to Reclaim Jesus by living the radical and inclusive life Jesus calls us to lead. Here’s our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry on how we are working as a national church to reclaim Jesus from those who hold him captive on the far right:
We are a diverse and welcoming spiritual community in a changing city and neighborhood. We welcome LTGBTQA people, their spouses, family, friends, and allies. Oasis California, the LGBTQ ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of California, is based here. As a spiritual community, we who are many become one by sharing one bread and one cup during services Sunday and Wednesday. We offer personal healing prayers and the ancient rite of anointing with holy oil at both services. We offer:
- Progressive Christian preaching, authentic spiritual practices, welcoming community, soulful music, & healing grace: Our 10 a.m. Sunday service draws on authentic traditions of the Christian Church as well as our congregation’s heritage of living as a community where everyone matters.
- Jazz Mass/Gospel Music Sundays: Once a month we celebrate our Piano Jazz Mass at our Sunday 10 a.m. service.
- Healing Prayers & Anointing: We offer healing prayers and anointing every Sunday at 10 a.m. and Wednesday at 11 a.m. Following our Wednesday Healing Mass, we either share a free light lunch or join in the free Senior Luncheon presented here on Fourth Wednesdays by this church and Episcopal Senior Communities.
The Cyprian’s Center
The Cyprian’s Center is our non-sectarian (not at all religious) program that opens our building to community groups. Some use our space for as the neighborhood concert hall, for group meetings, cooking classes, community dinners. improv groups. Groups or individuals interested in renting space here can find rental information here. Here are some of our community partners who share out building through Cyrpian’s Center:
We are a landmark congregation for San Francisco’s African American Episcopalians that has changed to reflect changes in our neighborhood. In 1960 our members built and opened this sacred space. They paid off the mortgage through pledges and BBQ dinners and rummage sales and community dinners. Today as we stand on their shoulders, as we offer you a Christian community where all are welcome, where everyone can find their place, where diversity of race and orientation are part of who we are.
