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 homes, neighborhoods, and workplaces, and wherever else we find people in our lives.

Simply put, a Burgh is a discipleship community on mission that does life together.



Dialogue Toget​​​​​​​her

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, Burghs will often get together with other Burghs just to hang out. Sometimes it's a potluck, gahtering to watch a movie, or play games. Other times, hangouts involve going out on town and doing something fun in our awesome city. Ultimately, these hangouts provide people a chance to make new friends and build great relationships while doing something fun together.

Serve Together

h2o Church believes that the church is to be a vehicle for change and positive influence, not for our own benefit, but for the benefit of the people of our city. Burghs are the primary communities where our faith is often put into action within h2o City. Several times throughout the year, our Burghs gather together to serve to serve  within the church, the neighborhoods, and all of Pittsburgh.
