First, parking is impossible. Second, wonderful glide Memorial is not located the best part of town. Arrive early and get a good seat we were there and Danielle Steele was sitting in the front row and introduced. Wonderful Music! A real memory maker

A very important part of San Francisco, downtown church with a unique congregation, total mix. Also an important political message and a terrific mission to serve the poor.

Walked by the church everyday last weekend and really didn't think much of it. There are definitely other prettier churches in San Francisco.

Some great music and very friendly staff. Music is uplifting with amazing voices. A great way to start the day. We are not religious so left before the sermons. A plate does go around but worth the few dollars for a unique experience

Not to be missed. Sunday only at 9 and 11am. Suggest 11am as if there is a celebrity guest then most likely this service. When we were there it was Danielle Steele, the popular author.
