Some great music and very friendly staff. Music is uplifting with amazing voices. A great way to start the day. We are not religious so left before the sermons. A plate does go around but worth the few dollars for a unique experience

They take care of the homeless here and I love that and every San Frisconian should volunteer here at least once.

One Christmas, Rev. Cecil Williams began his sermon with, "Today, we celebrate the birth of a child who was raised by a homeless couple." There was silence as his words resonated with the crowd. Every time I see a nativity scene, I think of those...More

There is no "church" like this anywhere in the world. You do not have to be a "believer" in anything. Just go with open heart and mind. You will be filled with incredible voices, jazz, words and love. If you have any doubts about anything,...More

Not to be missed. Sunday only at 9 and 11am. Suggest 11am as if there is a celebrity guest then most likely this service. When we were there it was Danielle Steele, the popular author.
