The New Wineskins Ethos

Picture of wineskins and bible verse over top, Luke 5 chapter 37 through 39: “And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; 
the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for they say, ‘The old is better.’”

New Wineskins is a conversation in community in the progressive Christian spiritual stream. It’s people coming together to share a meal, a drink, and ideas.

A way marked by radical generosity, radical inclusiveness, radical justice, and radical love.

At New Wineskins we believe conversation happens best when it is open, honest and authentic. Therefore we encourage a “No Judgment Zone” so that people can feel free to express themselves with genuineness and candor.

We welcome people from all backgrounds, faiths, cultures, orientations and experiences. While our conversations tend to center around expressions of the Christian faith, we understand that, for some, Christianity has been presented as a religion of oppression and exclusion. Our hope is to create a safe space for people to ask hard questions and express themselves freely.

If you’re not part of a church community, we are happy to create a space where you can explore and experience the life of Jesus. If you are, we hope you’ll experience something here that contributes in a positive way to the church you attend. We hope to be a supplement, not a substitute.

We welcome all people of all backgrounds, orientations and experiences. Bring your hardest questions and deepest doubts. Feel free to invite your friends.
