Religious Institutions

The South Loop provides a diverse range of options for people looking for places of worship and spirituality, a religious community, and/or an opportunity to work with others to give back. Most of them have their roots in Christianity, but that doesn’t mean they are traditional churches. Although Catholicism and established Protestant denominations (e.g., Presbyterian, Episcopalian, Lutheran) are represented, many are non-denominational. Some of the churches, like Willow Chicago and Urban Village Church, are part of larger Chicago groups, whereas others are unique to our neighborhood. Befitting urban churches in an area like ours, many have an expressed commitment to diversity and several are focused on engaging young adults in particular.

In addition to Christian Groups, the South Loop includes a Buddhist organization. A Jewish Synagogue and Islamic Center are close by in the Loop.

You can learn more about these organizations by accessing their websites, which are linked below. Looking for more options and/or a type of church not represented here (e.g., Baptist, Methodist)? Additional places of worship and spirituality outside of our boundaries can be found here. If there’s another religious or spiritual organization you think should be included on this page, please contact us.
