Who We Are

Urban Village Church is located throughout the city of Chicago (Hyde Park|Woodlawn, Andersonville, Wicker Park, South Loop). We are a faith community that seeks to be:
BOLD - Rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ, which tears down walls and builds up life.
INCLUSIVE - Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are truly welcome here. We mean it.
RELEVANT - Beliefs aren't rigid boxes to check, but springboards into imagination and meaningful action.

We are a community that creates space for folks where they are so that God's love can be multiplied out into the city - and beyond! We seek to love, serve, and engage the neighborhoods we are rooted in in ways that are life-giving, anti-racist, and true to God's vision of wholeness of life for all.

Our Services

What are services like?
From a visitor: "When I first came to this church, I was immediately welcomed by everyone. I really liked the music, the spirit of community, and the church's interest in AND involvement with social justice issues. Another thing I really liked was that the sermon was something I could take with me and really apply to my daily life...and each time I've been since then, I continue to feel that way."

What is the community like?
This church really is "bold, inclusive, and relevant." We are accepting of EVERYONE: believer/doubter, gay/straight/trans*, bookworms/sports fanatics...honestly, EVERYONE.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We have folks in the congregation who self identify as atheist but love what is happening in the community. They agree with the message, even if they don't believe in the faith and participate in many areas of community life.
