Welcome! We are happy you have found our website. We are a small,progressive congregation in north Berkeley, committed to an interfaith perspective of spirituality and faith. The interfaith tradition has been a growing part of our history for many decades. Our identity and purpose are rooted in the progressive Christian tradition and lead us to reflect upon the life and teachings of Jesus. At the same time, our explorations are informed and inspired by the respectful study of world and indigenous religions. We welcome people of any religious tradition or of a secular spirituality to join with us in worship and service to others. Northbrae gratefully welcomes all who enter our doors, and who desire an active and transformative faith.
