The Church of the Redeemer is a welcoming and caring community. Our congregation is curious and questioning. We have a history of social justice and outreach ministries, and lesbian and gay members are integral to our parish life. Worship is the heart of Redeemer’s life – it brings our family and church lives into one as we celebrate the liturgy, the word, and the sacrament together.
We are in Squirrel Hill.

Saturday, August 27, Church of the Redeemer will hold a rummage sale. We hope to attract returning students, so if you have usable small appliances or housewares that you don’t want, please put them aside. Collection of goods at the church will start in early August. If you’re old enough to have “vintage” clothing, we will be glad to take it, along with any glittery costume jewelry.
