Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Gathering Midtown one that offers peace and grace!
Service Time & Location
Gathering Midtown meets every Sunday at 10:30 am just north of Downtown and the Pearl Brewery in Midtown. We meet in the original Borden Milk Plant turned Self Storage facility. In 2014 we renovated one of the bottling rooms for our less than perfect industrial worship space.
Our address is 875 E Ashby Place, San Antonio, TX 78212.
What To Expect On A Sunday
HOW DO WE WORSHIP?
On Sundays we worship through music, the teaching of the Bible, communion, and fellowship. In total, a Gathering Midtown service is about 90 minutes in length.
As the family of God, we see Sunday gatherings as a family celebration, complete with breakfast snacks and coffee, hugs, tears, and encouragement.
We take an ancient/future approach to worship. Our worship liturgy is inspired by and sampled from the tried and true patterns of worship found in the Old Testament and The Book of Common Prayer. However, we try our best to make them culturally relevant and accessible to twenty-first century post-modern western Americans.
If you come from a traditional or liturgical background, you'll think we're bleeding edge futurists. If you come from a charismatic or non-denominational background, you'll think we're traditional. Sounds about right.
WHO SHOWS UP?
Gathering Midtown is full of folks who are hopeful but weary, searching, longing, joyful, wounded, and joyful. We have seen time and time again God use us as a safe refuge for the wounded and wandering.
We welcome everyone into our doors. Young professionals, students, empty-nesters, young families, believers, seekers, and everyone in between. We desire for you to feel welcome and in doing so long for you to come and experience the vast diversity of our church family.
We love kids! Our Kids Ministry is built to encourage Peace, Learning, and Safety. Please feel free to ask us for any other information regarding our Kids Ministry or facilities.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER?
It is our greatest hope that those who meet at Gathering Midtown would feel inspired to continue worshipping all week long by sharing the healing, wholeness, and acceptance they have found in their encounter with Jesus. Sometimes it even starts with a group going to lunch right after the service, which ends around noon.
WHAT'S THE CULTURE LIKE?
Sunday's are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest and part of our family.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Gathering Kids, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children's safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our kids ministry the first time you visit. You'll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in. Gathering Kids is offered for ages 6 months through elemantary school.
