Community Ministries

A growing homeless population of over 6,000 people resides in Austin. As believers, we know that it is our responsibility to show the love of Christ to all people, no matter who they are or what their background is.

Church Under the Bridge (CUB)  “Church Under the Bridge” is a combined effort of churches from all over the Austin area serving the homeless. Volunteers at CUB tangibly demonstrate the love of God to the people living on our streets through the provision of hot meals, clothing, blankets and sleeping bags. CUB now meets every Sunday morning at 7th Street and IH-35 across from the police station. The service starts at 10 a.m.


Church Under the Bridge

Sundays 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Under I-35 Between 7th & 8th Street

Church Under the Bridge (CUB) is a combined effort of the body of Christ throughout the Austin area. At CUB, those who attend will have the opportunity to be a part of worship, which includes live music, prayer, fellowship and a down-to-earth Gospel message. Twice monthly, host churches provide a meal to those who attend CUB. This meal provides a great opportunity to connect and share a meal with an individual who calls CUB their church home.

While many of those who attend are homeless, Church Under the Bridge is a place for all to come and worship God. Since 1993, CUB has existed to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to connect various individuals from the body of Christ with one another. It is through the Gospel, and through these connections, that we desire to see Christ-like transformation take place in the lives of all that attend.


Great Thanksgiving Banquet

​Thanksgiving Meal for the Homeless Community

Under I-35 at 7th Street, Austin, TX 78701

The Great Thanksgiving Banquet is held annually at Church Under the Bridge the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Those who attend are offered a hot meal, but, more importantly, are offered offered fellowship with other attendees and those who came to serve at the Banquet.

Holidays can be a lonely time for those living on the streets. Often times, our street friends are not in contact with loved ones. This becomes especially apparent during the holiday season. Our goal is to offer hope, compassion and a hot meal to those who attend the Great Thanksgiving Banquet.
