Young Adult Open Chapel

Open Chapel @ First Church

Join us every first, second and third Wednesday (Sept-May), 7-8:30 pm for our young adult “Open Chapel” gatherings, as we slow down, sing out, tune in, break bread, and open up. This progressive, experimental, inclusive, participatory Christian worship gathering is open to all young adults and takes place in First Church Berkeley’s Loper Chapel (right at the corner of Dana and Durant near the UC Berkeley campus). Services are led by Young Adult Minister Kit Novotny, with a team of young adults and folk musicians Sarah and Thomas Gettys, and Director of Music Derek Tam. 

1st & 3rd Wednesdays are contemporary, informal worship services2nd Wednesday Wildcards are community-led gatherings, a little different every time (meals, bible studies, yoga classes, discussions, etc.).
