About NotChurch

We are a community of people, mostly American expatriates, living in a small coastal town in Baja California. Though some of us come from ‘church’ backgrounds, many bristle at the thought of organized religion. That doesn’t, however, mean that we are not seeking something more out of life, and to connect with the spiritual–though that takes many different shapes for us. Not Church has emerged as a way for us to continue on that journey together.

“Plan to stay for dinner, drinks and the sunset after NOT Church . . . if you wish.
