Welcome to Swarthmore Presbyterian Church

Since its founding in 1896, Swarthmore Presbyterian Church has been an enduring and dynamic presence in the Swarthmore community. We have been blessed with a legacy of stable pastoral leadership and a congregation that upholds both independent thinking and deep, abiding values.  Here we equip ourselves to live faithfully and to share the gospel through service locally and globally.  Our congregants are generous of heart and ready to serve. Won’t you come and take a closer look?
