Sunday Gatherings

Sunday gatherings are the primary way we gather as a church to worship together, learn the Scriptures, pray for one another, and create space to hear from the Spirit. We also gather in similar age groups and stages of life to grow together.

Bridgetown Communities

Communities are the way we gather during the week around the bread and cup to be the people of Jesus in our city. In communities, we are practicing the way of Jesus, together, in Portland and we invite you to start or join a community in your neighborhood of the city.

  • Prayer Workshop & Book Launch

    Prayer is, without a doubt, the source of Jesus’ most astounding promises. And yet, most people find little life in prayer. In Tyler Staton’s new book, Praying Like Monks, Living Like Fools, we encounter the wonder and mystery of prayer in everyday life. To celebrate the release of Tyler’s new book, gather with us for a discussion on prayer followed by a Q&R.

    Time: 6:30 - 8 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Church (2120 NE Tillamook St, Portland, OR 97212)

     

  • Worship Choir & Auxiliary Instruments

    Throughout the year Bridgetown will have a choir to help lead worship in the Sunday Gatherings. Our hope is to utilize the Bridgetown choir quarterly. We also are looking for people who play auxiliary instruments (strings, horns, brass, etc.) to play at special events such as Advent. Learn more and register to audition.

    Dates: Sundays

  • Hiring for a Part-Time Custodian

    We believe organized, clean facilities, create a hospitable space,  equip community and production to operate at a higher level so we can more effectively see Jesus’ Kingdom come in Portland as it is in Heaven. The role of the Bridgetown Custodian is to perform highly diversified duties to prepare and maintain the gathering spaces before and during weekend gatherings or independent events. The custodian is also responsible for tearing down equipment. The Custodian should be a self-starter, conscientious, able to work both independently and as a member of a team.
