Young adult specific formation at St. Bartholomew’s sprang from the need for those in their 20’s and 30’s to find a community of friends with similar interests and at similar junctures in life. No longer youth, many young adults come to St. Bartholomew’s looking for a Christian community providing a safe space to explore the “chances and changes of this life” with others doing the same. St. Bartholomew’s is dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing place for young adults to come explore their lives in the context of one’s faith. We believe that Jesus Christ is present to us and alive within us as we discover who we are in this world, and who we are called to be. Come join us! You are always welcome here.

St. Bartholomew’s is a place where you can feel free to pursue God in a nourishing, loving and diverse community.

We meet Wednesday evenings at 6:15 pm in the Brooks Room.  A parish dinner is available beginning at 5:30 in the parish hall for a nominal cost of $7.00.  Reservations are needed for the dinner (404-634-3336). After dinner, we have conversations about current events in the life of the church, in the world around us, and in our own lives; always exploring how God acts and moves in our lives. We close each evening with Compline.

We will continue to search for the best slice of pizza on the 2nd Sunday of each month, when we go across the street to Mellow Mushroom after the 10:30 a.m. Eucharist. As with all of our events, ‘All are Welcome’ – if you self-identify as a Young Adult, that is good enough for us!  Newcomers are always welcome, so please bring a friend! Questions?  Contact Rev. Austin McGehee,, or (404) 634-3336.

From Fr. Austin

St. Bartholomew’s is a place where you can feel free to pursue God in a nourishing, loving and diverse community. Here you can explore how your life of faith, often during a time of transition and uncertainty, is present with the mystery of the Holy Spirit. We have conversations that deepen our understanding of God; at the same time feel safe to question or even doubt our understanding. Most of all, we lift each other up as we grow together. As much as we long for God, it is God who infinitely more longs for us. I am excited about sharing this journey with you and meeting all of you individually. Please contact me anytime at, or call (404) 634-3336 x 222.

Fr. Austin McGehee,
Associate Rector for Young Adults
