Campfire Church

A Whole New Way of Being ‘Church’
(a less-churchy kind of church)
next gathering: Friday, April 6th
(we gather on the first Friday of every month from 5:30 to 7:30pm
in the field behind Westminster Church, 1419 N 17th Street, Belleville)

Did you ever go to summer camp as a kid? Remember the games and fun, hotdogs and marshmallows on a stick over hot coals, and stories told in a circle of faces lit up with an orange glow?

Campfire Church started with an old idea (summer camp) and created a whole new way of being church.

On the first Friday of every month, we gather at 5:30pm in the field behind Westminster for games and food, followed by stories and songs of faith around the campfire, and finishing at about 7:30pm.

Campfire Church is for every age, because we believe that diversity of ages makes the gathering more vibrant and dynamic.

Campfire Church is a place where differences are valued and where we are encouraged to learn from one another, rather than to allow differences to divide us.

Campfire Church is for those who have never been in church, those who have walked away from traditional church, or those who still love traditional church.

Campfire Church values fun and friendship, but includes quiet and reflection and sacred moments.

Campfire Church is a very different kind of church … and we hope you’ll come and see for yourself!
