Our Mission

The Community of Saint Ninian is a Christian covenant community in Knoxville, Tennessee. Members of the Community have agreed to meet together for worship, prayer, study, and service. It is the desire of these persons to provide a space in their lives for God to dwell, as well as to seek a dwelling place in God for their lives.

We provide worship, continuing spiritual growth and Christian education for members, guests, and those interested.

In addition, we provide an opportunity for learning and living in a covenantal Christian community. Through active participation in community life, we open a space for the development of loving relationships within the Community.

Following the example of Christ, we reach out in love, healing and care to all God’s children.

As we are led and called, we support various justice initiatives, particularly those in support of the lgbtiq community. We understand this to be an essential function of our Christian discipleship.

As a Community, we value the earth and the beauty of God’s creation.

We struggle to be a learning and growing Community, reflecting on God’s word and action.
