Event description


One year ago we had a gastrochurch planned for literally the same day Harvey made landfall. We'd planned a theme (completely unknowing) around storms, fear, and what we need most when the worst happens. Little did we know what that week would have in store.

Some of us lost everything, some lost nothing, but nobody in Houston was unaffected. Whether you spent the storm eating pop tarts and watching Netflix or huddled on a rooftop, we all went through that storm together. Whatever your experience, we invite you to join us around the table as we reflect on storms, fear, loss, exhaustion, and where we are now.

This is a joint gathering near Kemah. Heights folks, we know it's a drive. But we promise it's worth it!!


What exactly is gastrochurch?

Dinner, drinks, and spiritual conversation. Our topics are explored from a Christian worldview (hence the "church" in gastrochurch), but all worldviews are welcome. If you're interested in connecting with real people over things that really matter in your life, gastrochurch is for you. If you want more information, or a general sense of what the gatherings are like, check out

What if I have dietary contraints?

That's perfectly fine. We can work with just about anything. After you register, just email with your dietary constraint.

Does this cost anything?

If this is your first time, no. Dinner is on us. If you've come before, we just ask for a donation. Give whatever you can. You can add your donation in the "donation" line of the registration, find us on Venmo as gastrochurch htx, or give on our website:

Can I bring friends?

Absolutely. Brings friends, neighbors, random people you meet on the train, and your second cousin you never talk to. Just make sure to register for the appropriate number of tickets so we know how many to prepare for.

How long will it last?

Our dinners last 2-2.5 hrs, depending on how much people talk. Part of the intention behind gastrochurch is to serve slow food, in every sense of the term. There aren't many times in our society when people spend two hours around the table anymore, and we think that's a shame.

What should I bring to the gathering?

You are welcome to bring a beverage to share. We'll have a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, as well as beer and wine, but feel free to bring your favorite beverage to share.
