Welcome to

All Souls Bethlehem Church

Join us! Sunday morningS at 10:45 am

We normally gather at our cozy house church at 566 East 7th Street (between Cortelyou and Ditmas) in the Kensington neighborhood of Brooklyn (BUT WE HAVE MOVED OUR SERVICES TO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE www.facebook.com/groups/allsoulsbethlehem DURING THIS TIME PERIOD OF COVID-19 . We are an open and affirming community, we celebrate the worth and dignity of ALL God’s people and each person’s search for truth and meaning in a non-dogmatic and friendly atmosphere. We worship through music, prayer, communal joys and concerns, and dynamic sermons.  We look forward when we all will be together again in our sanctuary, and we pray for the health, welfare, and safety of all at this time. 

Times are tough and we are

a shelter

in the storm.

 

The Little House Church in BrooklYn

 

We are ASBC, the little house church in Brooklyn with a big heart, a sense of humor, and a passion for the sacred, the arts, and social justice. A multi-faith community, we are connected to the Unitarian Universalist Association, the United Church of Christ, and the Disciples of Christ.

 

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” (Psalm 139)

 

We take God’s love seriously and ALL ARE WELCOME, no matter your race, ethnicity, religious beliefs, difference in ability, gender, or sexual orientation.  

 

"God is Still Speaking,” 

 

Rooted in the Hebrew scriptures and the teachings of Jesus, we incorporate other faith traditions and the wisdom of prophetic voices from psychology, science, Womanist and Black Liberation Theology, Native American and earth centered spirituality. Experience ASBC’s raucous and fun "Passing of the Peace" and our heartfelt sharing of joys and concerns followed by a pastoral prayer. 

 

“The only thing better than singing
is more singing.” (Ella Fitzgerald)

 

And we love to sing! We enrich worship through musical diversity from traditional hymns and spirituals to blues, jazz, gospel, classical and contemporary music led by our own artists and professional guests.

 

“We come from the creator with creativity.” (Maya Angelou)

 

We honor the arts—music, painting, writing, photography, and film—as integral to spiritual expression and nourishment. At ASBC, we present two monthly “open mics,” to which the public is invited to share their music and poetry. Once a month, we host Movie Night. Other activities include a twice monthly Bible Study and a Game Night at a local café, as well as sponsored trips to museums, concerts and exhibits.
