The Gathering creates worship experiences that address social injustice through womanist preaching and action and cultivates healing, learning, and growing fellowship for people who are churched, unchurched, de-churched, hurt by the church, and sick of church. They prioritize racial equity, LGBTQIA+ equality, and dismantling patriarchy, misogyny, and sexism.

Fall 2022 Mission & Ministry Grant

P.R.I.D.E. for Black Women and Girls

P.R.I.D.E. Programs (Positive Racial Identity Development and Embodiment), provide safe, accessible space for Blackwomen (over 50) and girls (ages 15-21) who are cisgender and LGBTQIA+, living with HIV, survivors of sexual trauma and sexual exploitation to experience authentic dialogue, build community, reclaim their stories, and be reoriented toward a wholistic trauma informed theology. Through spiritual and theological processing groups, educational classes, reading cohorts, and mini-retreats facilitated in Harriet’s Haven located at Northway Christian Church, P.R.I.D.E. will create opportunities and experiences that facilitate the flourishing of Black women and girls.
