Pilgrim House


Pilgrim House is a ministry of hospitality and simple living at First Congregational Church. We exist to provide an affordable, comfortable, safe, communal space for visitors to Memphis. We practice recycling, conservation of resources, hospitality, shared daily chores, and a serious commitment to a peaceful, welcoming, and grateful atmosphere.

We're located in Midtown Memphis, in the Cooper Young area. There are tons of excellent restaurants–several with live music–within easy walking distance. We are just about 15 minutes from the airport and downtown by car. We are also on MATA bus lines. Pilgrim House shares space at First Congregational Church with about 30 shared space partners–which makes for some interesting roaming around the place. We have 2 labyrinths (one inside and one outside) for meditation/prayerful/focused walking. Our Global Goods Fair Trade Store provides conscientious gift shopping & education. Through our partnership with Revolutions bicycle co-op, we can now rent recycled bicycles for $15 a day. And for those interested, Sunday morning worship begins at 10:30, with a coffee/fellowship time at 10:00.
