The “Cornerstone Society” of Free-Use Chapels

The Nurgakivi Selts is envisioned as a network of free-use chapels with capacity for 12 worshipers maximum. Chapels are intended as a short-term resource for small gatherings of seekers, worshipers and refuge seekers in places too small or remote to plant a church or maintain a full-use building. Chapels address the need for low cost, purpose-built, and easily managed infrastructure to facilitate small worship gatherings. Chapels also anticipate the growing need for temporary shelter for pilgrims, the broken and needy, or those fleeing war or hardship in their home country.
