A new church in San Jose provides beer for attendees – after the service.

Bill Jenkins has started the new church in downtown San Jose in a bar call the Loft Bar and Bistro.

They hold their service at 9:30 Sunday mornings.

"Ninety-two percent of the population in Santa Clara County.. is unchurched. The majority of people there have rejected traditional forms of church. So Jenkins wants to provide church in a new way. Most people that come to ours [church] wouldn’t touch a traditional church with a barge pole..”

He made Urbanlife as unchurch-like as possible.

I know after going to a Calvary Chapel for several years, I cannot go back to a traditional church. I know others are use to it and like it but not my cup of tea.
