About PBC

The Preston Bradley Center was formed by the Peoples Church of Chicago as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in 1987. Its purpose at that time was to restore and maintain the historic Peoples Church building. Over the years, the organization’s mission has expanded and it works now to both care for the building and engage in community outreach through the arts, spirituality, and social justice.

Peoples Church of Chicago

The Peoples Church of Chicago is a worshiping community of Christian, Unitarian Universalist, and other seekers who care deeply about justice, extravagant hospitality, and living our faith grounded in progressive values and Christian teachings. You are welcome here “If you believe in God some of the time, or none of the time, or all of the time,” so we state in our opening worship affirmation each Sunday. We are a multiracial congregation with members from all walks of life. Some of us are employed, some underemployed, some searching for work, and some retired. All of us endeavor to live out our call to be a faith-filled people. Some of us are housed, some homeless, and some temporarily housed. We honor the struggles that each of us may face in our day to day lives. And we join together, all of us, to form a community and make a difference in our neighborhood and city.

Join us for worship at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday.
