Thanks for visiting our website!
On Sundays, you’ll find a wonderful blend of people; as many as 13 different nationalities come together every Sunday at 9:30am– many ethnicities but one people coming together as beloved community through the grace of God. The worship is also a blend: traditional elements, multicultural melodies and new sounds, all coming together within a welcoming atmosphere.
Come by foot, by car (you are welcome to park in the State Lot C on Sunday mornings), or by the Green Line light rail that stops right in front of the church (the Capitol/Rice Street stop on University Avenue).
Christ on Capitol Hill (we’re right across the street from the State Capitol) is a place where people experience genuine grace and kindness. Enjoy browsing our site, and we hope to see you soon!
