See what's happening at uptown

Located near the University of Cincinnati campus, Crossroads Uptown serves the college community and Uptown neighborhoods north of downtown Cincinnati. Built in 1873, the building was once home to St. George Catholic Church. The church closed, and in 2008 the beloved steeples burned in an electrical fire. With a mission to breathe new life into the neighborhood, Crossroads purchased the building, and agreed to restore the steeples. The result is a state-of-the-art building that combines the industrial feel of Crossroads with the historic character of the original Catholic church.

Come as you are

Seriously. This is a real place for real people. Regardless of what you think about God, you are welcome here. In a nutshell, you can wear jeans, or dress up if you want. The coffee is free, so grab a cup before you sit down. The music is great and you’ll hear straight up Biblical truth that you can apply to your everyday life. The rest is up to you.
