ABOUT US

All Pilgrims Christian Church is a progressive faith community that offers opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, ministry, and community. We take pride in our diversity, and welcome the full participation of all as equal members in our community. Read our Open and Affirming Commitment.

All Pilgrims began in 2003 with the merger of two Broadway churches: Seattle First Christian Church (1883) and Pilgrim Congregational United Church of Christ (1899). We are affiliated with both the Disciples of Christ and the United Church of Christ.

“We are open to, and affirming of, the full participation of all as equal members in this one body: people of all colors, ages, economic circumstances, sexual orientations, gender or transgender identities, physical and mental abilities, education levels and conditions of health.”

Our Worship Service

Our worship takes place every Sunday at 10:30 am. This service features our choir and childcare is provided.

Our services are a mix of both modern and traditional Christian rituals. We gather as a community for bible readings, songs and holy communion.

  • – Bring all of who you are, to be emotionally engaged and intellectually stimulated. We believe God still speaks to us in our post-modern world. Together, we share a holy encounter through:
  • – Traditional and world music
  • – Classic bible reading and dynamic displays of sacred stories
  • – Traditional Christian rituals, and some modern ones
  • – A hopeful, progressive faith-based community

– Join us in worship and feel the transformational spirit that makes us new.

Music at All Pilgrims

The All Pilgrims Christian Church Choir consists of professional and amateur singers who enjoy preparing a wide variety of repertoire for weekly worship. From Spirituals and Gospel to World Music and Bach Cantatas, the choir’s primary role is to lead the congregation in song.

The choir season runs throughout the academic year, beginning in late August and ending in early June. We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7 – 8:30 pm in the Sanctuary and often prepare major works for choir and brass or orchestra for special services and events. We also frequently join with our colleagues at neighboring churches for choral festivals and concerts.

Although there is no formal audition process, you are invited to talk with Stephen Marshall-Ward, our Minister of Music, about joining the choir, or email him here. We are always looking for singers who like to work hard in a team-oriented environment.

CONCERTS

All Pilgrims produces a small series of concerts each year which feature our 80-stop digital organ built by Allen Organ Company. These concerts also feature a wide variety of music from Native American flute-playing to jazz and classical guitar. See Calendar for upcoming concerts.
