A Spiritual, Loving, Relevant and Transforming Community

Our open and affirming church welcomes everyone

About Us

Plymouth Congregational Church is a progressive faith community grounded in the Christian tradition. In mutual care and with respect for our diverse understandings of God, we seek to embody the radical love and justice found in the life, teachings and spirit of Jesus.

Located at the southern edge of downtown Minneapolis, Plymouth Congregational Church offers worship services and spiritual learning opportunities for all ages that are relevant to the world in which we live.

We are committed to creating sanctuary for the soul and seeking the sacred in all ways. We engage the ancient teachings to bring them alive today, nourishing and expanding hearts and minds to become the change we want to see in the world.

  • Open, Welcoming & Committed to Justice

    All are welcome in this church, which is free of doctrine and committed to social justice. Racial justice, gun violence prevention and supportive housing are some of our current initiatives.

    Let’s regain the moral high ground! On Oct. 10, Plymouth hosted the social justice  Revival led by Rev. Dr. William J. Barber. Watch the video now. (Rev. Dr. Barber’s sermon begins about 1:45.)

  • Infused with Art

    The arts play a central role at Plymouth, from the extraordinary choirs and soloists and stellar pipe organ to the Fine Arts Gallery offering a collection that inspires and challenges.

  • Progressive & Relevant

    At Plymouth, we all may not share the same understanding of God and faith, but Progressive Christianity provides a spiritual sanctuary for those who seek the sacred in a variety of ways.
