The Church Without Walls

Sundays at 10:30am in Candler Park, Picnic Pavilion 2, rain or shine. Come as you are, you’re welcome here.

You’re in the right place

We’re an independent, affirming and progressive church serving metro Atlanta that is open, positive and inclusive. Our congregation comes from many spiritual backgrounds, but we agree on the following and invite you to come worship with us and experience God’s love in a whole new way.

God loves you unconditionally

God passionately desires a direct relationship with you, just the way you are.

Your relationship with God is paramount

No one, no institution, no thing, should come between you and God.

Your faith is between you and God

God does God’s best work when there are no intermediaries between you and God.

Rev. Paul M. Turner

What we believe

God never gives up on you. So long as you have a spark, an ember of faith in your heart, God will do all that’s in God’s power to fan that into a full-blown bonfire. That’s how much God loves you. That’s God’s job.

Rev. Paul M. Turner

How we worship

We worship outdoors as the Church Without Walls in Candler Park, throughout the spring, summer and fall. All are welcome.

Our ministries

From our founding we have focused on the needs of LGBTQ+ people and their allies, and that mission has grown to include housing, hunger and other challenges faced by the marginalized.

This week’s message

2 Corinthians 4:16-17

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without God’s unfolding grace. These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.

2 Corinthians 4:16-17

Sunday worship

Sit Down and Take a Breath

Second Sunday after Pentecost | Sermon: Rev. Paul M. Turner, Senior Pastor | Reading: Mark 2:23-3:6 Then Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made to serve us; we weren’t made to serve the Sabbath. The Son of Man is no yes-man to the Sabbath. He’s in charge!” (Verse 28)

Sit Down and Take a Breath

Meet our staff

We come from varied backgrounds and faith traditions but agree on one thing: All God’s children deserve to have a personal relationship with God that is supported, not defined, by the church.
