Welcome to the First Presbyterian Church of New Haven

We hope you will worship with us and give us the opportunity to welcome you in person.

15FPCEasterService_2341_300First Presbyterian Church is a worshiping community of progressive Christian believers in the greater New Haven region. We are a broadly diverse and welcoming congregation, and include people from the city of New Haven and all of the surrounding towns, as well as many from the university communities. 

We gather on Sunday morning to worship God, and throughout the week to be about the work of God in the world. We are a part of the Reformed tradition, which means that we value the Word of God in Scripture, and as we understand it in the midst of today’s world.
