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.

More about Gathering


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.

Upcoming Events

  • The Elimination of Violence Against Women

    November 25th is a day that the UN has designated as the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread and persistent human rights violations in our world today, affecting every country and every community, in some way.

    Dates: Nov 25


  • Refugee Restart Kits

    Refugees arrive to Oregon with few possessions and have to quickly build their lives again. In partnership with Refugee Care Collective, help us assemble Restart Kits and provide essential household items to welcome refugees into our city and give them the hospitality needed to make a new place feel like home.

    Dates: Drop off on Saturdays


  • Bridgetown & The “Four Week Freeze”

    Due to rising cases of COVID-19 and in advance of the Thanksgiving holiday, Multnomah County (among several other counties) has been put on a “Four Week Freeze.” While houses of worship are technically exempt from these temporary regulations, Bridgetown’s desire is the care for the vulnerable in our community and contribute to the health and wellness of our city. Until the freeze ends, Bridgetown will be reducing capacity for all events to 25 or fewer, including staff. We miss you, and we look forward to and pray for the eradication of COVID-19.

    Dates: During "Four Week Freeze"

  • Young Adults Worship Night

    As a church, we want to take every opportunity to safely gather together to worship God and pray. Gather with us every Sunday evening to worship by singing and make space to listen to the Spirit alongside other young adults at Bridgetown. Registration available weekly. To adhere to government guidelines during the Four Week Freeze, we are offering 5 & 7 PM Gathering times, with a limit of 25 people at each event.

    Dates: Sundays

    Time: 5 & 7 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Church (2120 NE Tillamook St.)

  • Bridgetown & Racial Justice Resources

    In Jesus we see a God who experiences anger at the evil in our world, who establishes justice and righteousness, and who works on behalf of the oppressed. We also see in Jesus a God who listens intently, grieves deeply, and weeps. As apprentices of Jesus, we aim to follow his example. Discover ways to listen, learn, and give to our Black and Brown brothers and sisters as we go on the journey of racial reconciliation and healing.
