Called to social justice
We are a welcoming, inclusive, Episcopal/ecumenical/earth-based congregation that practices communion as neither pretty or perfect but open to all of us to show up as we are. We are participatory, active, loving, and committed to the often uncomfortable challenges of inner and communal spiritual growth.
We are rooted in the Corktown neighborhood in Detroit. We intentionally offer our space to community-based organizations who fight racism and its systemic manifestations. We read scripture through the lens of our current moment and location. We practice radical hospitality to our housed and unhoused neighbors. We understand all this to be a critical part of our work as a church.
We hear God’s call to us outside of St. Peter’s walls. We believe involving ourselves in the fight for justice is spiritual work. We gather at rallies, vigils, protests. We hold trainings and risk arrest, and consider it church. We are called to speak truth to power, we are called to solidarity. We strive to walk this path together and build beloved community.
