WHAT IS A BURGH?

H2OU BURGHS DO LIFE TOGETHER


h2oU Burghs are discipleship communities on mission and represent the heart and soul of h2o.

They provide a space for people to gather and grow together beyond Sunday mornings. These communities create opportunities for dialoguing about life and real world issues, exploring the Bible and the Christian faith, and helping each other to grow in our understanding and application of that faith. People in these communities hangout together, eat meals together, study together, and often form friendships with each other that are centered on things that really matter and can last well beyond college. At their core, these communities are centered on Jesus and seek to turn words and beliefs into actions by encouraging each other to sacrificially love and serve people the way the Jesus did; both within the Burgh and beyond our Burgh - in our dorms, on our campuses, in our neighborhoods, and wherever else there are people in our lives.

WHAT DOES A BURGH DO?

H2OU BURGHS DO LIFE TOGETHER


Dialogue Together​​​​​​​

Each Burgh hosts a regular Dialogue where people get together and discuss the Bible and how it applies to their lives. Dialogues are open to anyone – so whether you’re a Christian, a non-Christian, exploring your spirituality, or unsure what to believe, these dialogues are for you. They’re a great place to connect with people who are willing to be open and real and aren’t afraid to talk about some of life’s biggest questions. 

Hang Out Together

Throughout the month, Burghs have hangouts going on that anyone can come be a part of. Sometimes it's just having a potluck, watching a movie, or playing games. Other times, hangouts involve getting off campus, going to something happening around the city. Ultimately, these hangouts provide people a chance to make new friends and build great relationships while doing something fun together.


Love and Serve Together

Burghs are the primary commuities where words and beliefs are catalyzed into actions. Each Burgh seeks to humbly follow Jesus by trying to sacrifcially love and serve all people, both within  and beyond the Burgh. This can take place among people in a specific dorm, on a campus, across campuses, and in neighborhoods throughout the city of Pittsburgh. Burghs are a great place to grow at loving and serving people together..

Regardless of what Burgh you end up in, there will no doubt be some awkward, challenging, and draining moments, because people are messy

and imperfect. Howev,er if you are willing to invest and engage within a Burgh, there will also be amazing, joyful, and life-givng moments,

because we believe that people are designed to do life together.
