…an organism progressing onward: evolving as a hospitable, relevant, self-sustaining, and generative movement that reflects God’s radically inclusive love.

A Second Site

V&M - Ravenna is our emerging new site in North Seattle

We are launching another site for Valley & Mountain! This started when the people of Ravenna United Methodist Church, a historic congregation at the end of its life cycle, made the bold choice to leave a legacy by giving us their building to create something new. We renamed it the Ravenna Collaboratory and are turning the space into a community hub for the arts, spirituality and social change.

Current gatherings at V&M - Ravenna (5751 33rd Ave NE, Seattle)

  • Celebrations: 1st Thursdays, 6:30pm-7:30pm. Creative services with music, co-created sermons, and community. Childcare provided!
  • Conversations on the Absurd: 2nd Thursdays, 7:30pm-9:00pm. Talk philosophy, theology, justice, and mystery at The Duchess, a pub in Ravenna.
  • MAKERS: 3rd Thursdays, 6:00pm-9:00pm. Monthly gatherings to create art in the presence of others. Explore the intersection of creativity and spirituality.

The Collab

The home of V&M in the heart of Hillman City, Seattle.

In June 2013, V&M partnered with Community Arts Create to open the Hillman City Collaboratorya social change incubator.  It is the focal point of our efforts to create a center for creative liberation in our city and it is also where we gather for Celebrations on Sundays.

Located in the heart of Hillman City, a diverse and historic neighborhood in south Seattle, the Collaboratory is currently home to over 24 different social change organizations, an art gallery, a learning kitchen, an urban farm, a homeless drop-in center, and a lot more.
