Our vibe is joyous and down-to-earth. Though the Sanctuary, with its Tiffany stained-glass windows, looks kind of formal, worship services often ring with laughter, the chatter of a baby, and the greetings of friends. It is a sacred space, but it is also a community space.

Worship is traditional. The congregation sings from a hymnbook to organ or piano accompaniment, the choirs wear robes, you will hear scripture, a sermon, prayers of the people, and an affirmation of faith. Offering is collected at each service. 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. services follow the same pattern but differ in musical offerings. Only the 10:00 service includes a children’s message.

Attire ranges from coat-and-tie to soccer uniform, with many things in between. Come in what feels comfortable to you – your presence is what we care about most.

Celebrations of communion occur on the first Sunday of each month. Most often, the elements (bread and grape juice) will brought to you as you sit in your pew. We eat and drink the elements together after everyone is served. Occasionally, we serve communion using intinction, where you walk up the aisle and pick up a piece of bread from a server, dip it in a cup of grape juice, serve yourself, and return to your seat. Everyone is welcome to participate in the Sacrament of the Lord’s supper. You don’t have to be Presbyterian or even a member of any church. There is no age requirement. At communion, we remember Jesus’ last meal with his disciples, and how Jesus gave his life for each of us so that we will have eternal life. More about the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper

Our building is a maze, but most doors are open for Sunday worship. There is a ramp on the west side of the building near the office entrance (next to the Masonic Lodge). Accessible parking is found along the back of the building. Others can park in the lot between the church and the Haddonfield Middle School. Enter from Chestnut Street. Parking at the church is free all of the time, but requires a permit on weekdays. Inquire in the church office.
