WHAT IS A BURGH?

A SMALL COMMUNITY LEARNING TO LOVE GOD AND LOVE PEOPLE TOGETHER


Burghs are smaller communities within h2o that provide a place for you to connect with other people who have a desire to grow in their understanding of what it means to love God and love people.  Burghs gather regularly to dialogue about the Bible and how it’s relevant to our beliefs, to our lives, and to issues facing our world today. Beyond the regular gathering, people in the Burghs often meet-up to study together, eat together, hang out together, explore the city together, and serve together. In a Burgh, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to and help others sacrificially love and serve people the way the Jesus did, both within the Burgh and beyond the Burgh - in our dorms and neighborhoods, in our classrooms and workplaces, among our friends and families, and wherever else we find people in our lives.

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. 

Spend Time Together

Throughout the month, people in the Burgh spend time together. Somtimes, it's just a few people, sometime,s it's the whole Burgh, and somtimes, we get together with other Burgh. We make meals, explore the city, watch movies, play games, go to concerts, celebrate holidays, and study late way too late into the night. Ultimately, spending time together provides a chance to make new friends and build great relationships regardless of what we're doing.


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.
