Vegan Friendly Church and Vegan Pastor
A Compassion Internet Christian Church Ministry From

Eastside Community Church
Austin, TX

Eastside Community Church, a part of the Hill Country Bible Church Association, in Austin, TX is home to one of the largest Christian vegan and vegetarian communities in the city including 1 vegan and 1 vegetarian on staff. Meeting in the heart of East Austin at Mission Possible every Sunday from 11:00am to 12:30pm, you can look forward to vegan and gluten free communion elements, coffee creamers, as well as vegan and vegetarian options at potlucks and special events. Lead Pastor Holland Greig is very welcoming to vegan and vegetarians, and does everything he can to make them feel comfortable, welcome and wanted at the church.

ECC practices and believes in Creation Care as a church and in the personal and social lives of members and attenders. This looks like answering God's call to stewarding the planet every day by choosing healthier and more ethical food options and other daily use items, and encouraging recycling and composting. Creation Care, and reminders of God's care for all created things, are regularly mentioned in our sermons and classes.

The church has their own community garden, led by Sam Towns, the vegan pastoral assistant of the church, where they teach church members and attenders the basics of growing their own vegetables, herbs and fruits so they can teach others, as well as how to compost. Vegan food grown in the garden is shared with the church community and those in the community who are in need whether low income, disabled or homeless.
