About Us

We are an inclusive community of faith of Song, Word, and Table.

We are creative, collaborative, and sacramental.

We gather for worship, study, and community service.

The 505 Service experiments with music, liturgy, and spiritual practices to communicate ancient themes in new ways. We believe all are incredibly loved by God, and the Word and Table remind us of who we are and whose we are, and how we might respond. We believe God invites us to worship in many different ways. The 505 is a space where all are welcomed and affirmed as we embrace the journey of faith, leaning into the questions more than any answers. 

One response to our faith is to lean into the work of food and economic justice in the City of Wilmington. One of our main mission projects, the Wilmington Kitchen Collective, was founded with this in mind. The Kitchen Collective is a space to invest in the culinary entrepreneurs of our city, as we redistribute wealth and resources, one day at a time.
