The Commonwealth is a new, progressive, Jesus-centered community of faith.
People from the city, the universities, and the street are gathering to create a community of peace in Oakland by practicing radical inclusion, generosity, creativity, storytelling, justice and gratitude to God.
We celebrate LGBTQIA+ people and queer folx are invited to be members and leaders and to have their marriages blessed by the community.
weekly in small groups to talk about books, spirituality, and the Bible;
monthly for a free community dinner and worship gathering;
quarterly for neighborhood service projects; and
annually for a summer festival and a fall retreat.
We belong to the Presbyterian Church (USA) and are sponsored by Pittsburgh Presbytery, supported by the Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community and Third Presbyterian Church, and hosted by the Community of Reconciliation.
We believe that church should be safe for everyone and we know that it hasn’t always been. If you’re nervous about joining a new faith community for this reason, we invite you to check out our Child Protection Policy and Sexual Misconduct Policy.
