Congregational Church of Belmont, CA

Positively Progressive

Who We Are

We invite you to come worship with us and see how we do church. You'll find a pastor who doesn't stay put in the pulpit, but likes to preach from the aisle.

You'll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar or piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation. You'll find a special time for children that includes a ringing of bells, so we can listen to God in the silence that follows. You'll find flowers and beauty in our historic building.

In our church, you will find ideas to stimulate your thinking and surprising new understandings that can come from reaching deep into the history and mystery of the scriptures.

What to Expect

What are services like?

We don't believe in telling each other what to believe. We accept that we are all questioning and seeking the path to celebrating God and Christ among us. So we gather as a sometimes noisy group of intelligent adults and remarkable children — oh, yes, the children! — who dress casually, sing robustly and live out our extravagant welcome!


What is the community like?

We seek to be a community of welcoming, diverse people who prefer to think for themselves and live our faith. We treasure our children and involve them in every aspect of our church life.


What if I'm not a Christian?

We practice extravagant welcome: You are welcome here!
