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.
Advent is a season of looking forward to the new light of Christ, but we’d be missing out on half the story if we didn’t also find grace and wonder in the midst of shadows. Join in our exploration of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love, as we prepare our hearts and homes to welcome Christ.
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.
