Online Faith is a courageous gesture toward God. It is hope and uncertainty. It is vulnerability and mystery. At Kenilworth Union Church, we believe that Christ calls us together to build communities of justice, kindness, and humility. Our Online Faith communities welcome all that is vulnerable, uncertain, joyful, holy, exhausting, and deeply good about creating a home together with your children. Join the conversation, be part of the beloved community.
