    Pub Church 5:30-7 p.m. at Scholz Garten, 1607 San Jacinto Blvd. All are welcome!
    PUB CHURCH provides regular opportunities for folks in Austin to interact with some of our community’s most interesting individuals, PUB CHURCH is a church about coming together and discussing issues of the heart, mind, soul, and spirit. While we hardly ever reach an ideological conclusion at PUB CHURCH, this sort of concrete resolution is not the goal of the program. Rather, PUB CHURCH is about the journey and the conversation, about respect toward differing opinions of the other, and about enjoying food, drink, and excellent music together with strangers and friends. Often led by NPR’s John Burnett, Front Porch founder Steve Kinney, and other notables, this platform for thoughtful conversation with folks of all sorts about the things that matter is what we believe church is all about. Communion at PUB CHURCH is radically open to all, as we seek to recover the power of table fellowship before Jesus got turned into a religion.

    Free Sunday overflow parking in the 27th Street and Speedway UT garages. As you enter the garage pull a parking ticket and then have it validated at the All Saints’ Welcome Desk outside of Kinsolving Hall on Sunday morning. You need a validated ticket to exit from the garage. If you have questions or problems, please contact Mona Myers (cell 791-8141). The street parking spaces along 27th, Whitis and the west side of University are paid city parking for $1 per hour (maximum 5 hours). The east side of University is UT parking (permit only).
