Welcome to Plymouth Church, the Jazz and Justice Church. We’re delighted that you’ve visited our website, and we hope that you’ll visit with us in person soon!
What makes Plymouth Church such a beloved community?
First, we are a welcoming, diverse and inclusive congregation. Our congregation reflects the blessed diversity of the Bay Area, with people of Caucasian, African American, Latino/a, and Asian American heritage; people who identify as “straight” and people who identify as LGBT; single people and married/partnered people. No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at Plymouth Church.
Second, our worship is joyful, vibrant and filled with fabulous music. Folks often say that Sunday worship at Plymouth is one of the best concerts they’ve ever attended! Our congregation includes some of the Bay Area’s most celebrated jazz and blues musicians, and their gifted artistry is the heartbeat of our Sunday morning worship.
Third, our theology is progressive and open-minded. At Plymouth Church, you’ll never be told that you have to believe this way or that way, or you have to profess this creed or that creed. You will be encouraged to see yourself as a beloved child of God and a “co-conspirator” in building a more just and peaceful world. And you will frequently be reminded that “faith is a verb.” Our faith comes to life not in what we say, but in what we do to help create more justice and peace for all.
Come check us out. Come to Plymouth and be blessed!
