Welcome to Smithfield United Church of Christ. Based in the heart of Pittsburgh downtown, our church has been serving the Pittsburgh community for over two hundred years. From our weekly services to our outreach and educational activities, we are an inclusive congregation, committed to oneness in Christ.
Smithfield strives to be the people of Jesus Christ, transcending all boundaries of race, class, gender, ability, culture, and sexual identity. We desire to provide a loving environment in which individuals and community may experience Jesus Christ's love and reconciliation in the light of free conscience.
What to expect?
New to Smithfield? Not for long... When you enter our sanctuary, you are no longer a visitor. You are part of our community. Our extravagant welcome may surprise some but, as you will experience, it is genuine and heartfelt. It represents who we are and the values we embrace.
Services are held on the second floor sanctuary:
Sunday - 11:00 a.m.
Wednesday - 12:10 - 12:30 p.m.
The sanctuary is open for meditation and prayer Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Ours is an inclusive congregation, Open and Affirming (ONA). We are committed to oneness in Christ across all boundaries of race, ethnicity, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, family structure, faith background, ability, and economic circumstance.
