Underhill House

A quiet place to pause, open weekly on Thursdays 12:00 – 2:00 PM. The entrance is through All Pilgrims’ courtyard on E Republican, a transition space to help you begin leaving noise and worries behind. Come sit with us in sacred silence to meditate, reflect or pray, and if you desire, we’ll spend a few minutes listening to you tell us what brings you in that day and offer a prayer.

College of Spirituality

The College of Spirituality is a program of tuition-free classes that provide a framework for members and friends to experience a liberating, practical conversation about the Bible, spiritual growth, and All Pilgrims’ identity, history, and life. Each quarter, we offer classes on subjects ranging from a specific book of the Bible, to faith and social justice, to spiritual messages in popular movies. Participants generally meet weekly for small-group learning and discussion. The classes are open to people who come with “starting-point” questions, as well as those with long backgrounds in religious experience. As one participant put it, “the classes open our eyes to new ways of thinking and feeling about how we live our faith in today’s world.”

Class offerings will be updated soon
