Sunday gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church around the bread and cup, to worship together, learn the Scriptures, pray for one another, and create space to hear from the Spirit. We are excited to announce that after years of praying and planning, we finally have a space to gather on Sunday mornings. We have begun gathering in the morning at Chapman Elementary School in Northwest Portland. We also continue to gather at our normal times in the evening at First Baptist Church in Downtown Portland.
The Sunday morning gathering is a place for families with young kids and anyone else unable to gather with us in the evening. It will be a smaller gathering with a stripped down worship set. Space is limited at Chapman Elementary, so if you are able, please gather with us in the evening. Parking at Chapman Elementary School is limited to streets only and we ask that you be courteous to area residents. Bike racks are available near front doors. We recommend arriving early with plenty of time to find parking and walk to the school.
Evening gatherings is where Bridgetown Church first began. We gather at First Baptist Church, one of Portland’s oldest buildings. A parking lot is available at SW 12th Ave. & Salmon St. for families and first time guests. Street parking is also available. Bike racks are located next to the building. Streetcar line is available at the end of the block. If you are interested in being baptized, please attend an evening gathering.
As a church, we feel called to pray more. We are inviting the people of Bridgetown to a time of prayer over our gatherings. All are welcome and encouraged to participate as we respond to the leading of the Spirit and pray for our leaders, teachers, servants, and all that God will be doing in and through the gatherings.
