WHAT IS A BURGH?

A DISCIPLESHIP COMMUNITY ON MISSION


Burghs are smaller communities within h2o that provide a way for people to gather and grow beyond just Sunday morning, and represent the heart and soul of h2o. At their core, Burghs are centered on relationships - with God, with each other, and with our neighbors. These communities create opportunities for dialoguing about life and real world issues, exploring the Bible and faith in God, and helping each other to grow in our understanding and application of that faith. People in these communities spend time together, eat meals together, serve together, and so much more. They are a communities that seek to turn beliefs and words are into actions by encouraging each other to sacrificially love, care for, and serve people the way the Jesus did, both within the Burgh and beyond the Burgh - in our dorms and neighborhoods, our classrooms and workplaces, with our friends and families, and wherever else we find people in our lives. Simply put, a Burgh is a discipleship community on mission that does life together.

WHAT DOES A BURGH DO?

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 communities 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.
