Convergence

Sanctuary - Church St. Campus 

111 Church St SE, Blacksburg, VA 24060

11:00am

Convergence worship is the coming together of historic and contemporary worship. This approach to worship follows the fourfold approach to worship, draws on an ancient hymnody, and incorporates contemporary music and other arts.

Convergence is both old and new; a worship that respects tradition, but seeks to incorporate a new willingness to learn from the entire worshipping community.

We strive to be a community that truly welcomes all persons, regardless of identity, age, ability, or history. We structure our common life in ways that empower and enhance everyone’s participation and leadership. We love this sacred work because it allows us to meet God in all people.
