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 primary way that 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.

  • Serve: Prayer Team

    Prayer is central to life with Bridgetown Church and we are looking to grow our Prayer Team. As apprentices of Jesus, we want to help people hear the voice of the Spirit in their life through prayer. At the end of every Sunday gathering, we invite people forward for prayer. It is an incredible place to listen with them and hear God’s gentle, kind voice.

    Dates: Sundays
