Every Sunday at 4:00 pm, Broad Street Ministry gathers to hear God’s word for Philadelphia. We use music, scripture, prayer, and challenging preaching to learn what God is up to and what God’s going to do next.
Central to every worship service at BSM is an invitation to the Table. You can call it the sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion, or the Eucharist but the point is that it’s the place where everyone is welcomed home, where there is enough for everyone, and where all you need to do is bring yourself.
That’s the bottom line at BSM: No matter who you are, you belong here. Our worshiping community is multi-racial, many ages, and socioeconomically diverse. Some of us have PhD’s in theology and some have never been to church before. Some of us are LGBTQ or straight allies, and some of us are figuring it out. Some of us have loved church from the day we were born and some of us have always hated churches and preachers for their hypocrisy.
It’s all here under one roof. And there’s always room for one more.
What kind of worship services are held at BSM?
Well, that is a tough question. We are trying to reflect the best of what 2,000 years of what the Spirit has taught the church—and casting out some of the stuffier elements as well as some that are just plain hurtful. We also want to be open to the new proddings of the Spirit—staying open to new forms, new expressions of music and motion—but being open to newness for us also means shying away from novelty and gimmicks. Join us every Sunday at 4:00 pm.
Kids and their choruses are welcome and church is never ever cancelled.
