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.
We are in a time of transition here at First Pres, and in times of transition it can be important to ground ourselves in our faith. During this Lenten season we will be doing this grounding work through spiritual practices of praying, fasting, and almsgiving – with some other practices thrown in.
All that the church is and does is rooted in its worship. We gather as a community of faith in response to God’s call on Sunday mornings to praise God with joy and to profess our witness to the life of Jesus Christ.
For many people the first time walking into a new church can be a daunting experience: full of both promise and uncertainty. Everyone who passes through First Presbyterian’s doors is welcome, regardless of religious background or church experience.
