First Presbyterian Church New Haven is a worshiping community of Christian believers dedicated to following Jesus Christ in a just and compassionate ministry.
We warmly welcome the full diversity of God’s family in all our races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, nationalities or ethnicities, economic situations, and abilities.
Preparing for Our Future
The Session is preparing for the next chapter in the life of our church. This is a time for a new beginning.
Rather than replicate and reform, we are allowing for our past to inform us and for God’s creative and innovative Spirit to lead us into the future.
From Friendship Hour and fellowship opportunities to worship to faith formation – we are building from the ground up and we need your input!
The life of the Church is one, and it’s worship, witness, and service are inseparable. All that the church is and does is rooted in its worship. The community of faith, gathered in response to God’s call, is formed in its worship. Worship is the principal influence that shapes our faith, and is the most visible way we express the faith known in Jesus Christ.
For many people the first time walking into a new church can be a daunting experience: full of promise but also full of uncertainty. Everyone who passes through First Presbyterian’s doors is welcome.
You do not need to be a Presbyterian by upbringing or practice. Indeed, you do not need to have any religious background or church experience.
