Peace and Social Justice Ministry
Bell Street Chapel has a long history of involvement in social change and working for social justice. Our ministry in this area has included advocating for marriage equality, economic justice, racial justice, and involvement in the Zero:2016 campaign to end homelessness in Rhode Island. This coming year we are focused on reproductive rights, dismantling white supremacy, and addressing systemic homelessness.
At Bell Street, we believe that every person should feel welcome and accepted when they enter our doors. As such, our Welcoming Ministry helps to ensure that each person is greeted and has their questions answered when they visit the Chapel, has a name tag, and has the opportunity to learn about ways to offer their gifts of time and presence to make the world a better place.
One of the wonders of a religious community is the ability to care for one another in times of crisis, illness, or other pain. It is also a blessing to share the joys in our lives with other people in the congregation. Our Caring Ministry seeks to offer presence, caring, and compassion to those among us who are struggling, worrying, or having a hard time.
At Bell Street, we love a good celebration, fundraiser, or holiday party! Our Events Ministry organizes all major events that happen at Bell Street.
