Renewal West Philly!
Thank you for your interest in our West Philly Campus! As the original campus of Renewal Presbyterian Church, we are excited to be a local congregation for the many of us who live in the West Philly area. Join us as we hope to be a welcoming community for people in West Philly to experience the transforming grace of Jesus Christ.
Meeting time: 10:30am
In-Person worship is suspended at this site, but we hope to open soon! You can sign up to attend in-person services at our Center City campus, read more here.
A warm welcome to you! We are glad you are considering visiting us. Whether you are new to church, haven’t been to church in a long time, or are new to the area and searching for a new church home, it is our goal that you will be welcomed into a community of people renewed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
If you do visit us on a Sunday, we invite you to stop by our Welcome Table after the worship service, where we can answer any of your questions and help you take the next step in getting connected.
What to expect?
When and where do you meet on Sundays?
We currently have one service at 10:30am, at our church building (4633 Cedar Ave).
How can I get there by public transportation?
The Route 34 Trolley will drop you off at 47th St & Baltimore Ave. From there, walk one block north to our building on the corner of 47th St & Cedar Ave.
What is your worship service like?
Our service is about 90 minutes long. The style is fairly liturgical, and we seek an atmosphere of reverent joy. During the service, we sing, pray, profess our faith, confess our sins, hear a sermon based on the Bible, and enjoy the sacraments together.
What is your music like?
We sing a mix of old hymns and contemporary worship songs from a variety of sources such as Getty Music, Passion, CityAlight, and others. You can listen to a playlist from our Sunday worship here.
How often do you celebrate the Lord’s Supper?
Once a month.
What do people wear?
Some people dress casually (jeans) while others are more formal (tie, dress). Most are somewhere in between.
Is there a Nursery and Sunday School for children?
Yes! We have a Nursery for children under 2 and Sunday school for ages 2 – 5th grade during the 9:30am service only. We ask that you have your children (all ages) participate in the worship service with you until the time of greeting, when the children can be dismissed to their respective classrooms. More info can be found here.
Is there a Youth Group?
We do have a Youth Group for 6th-12th grade students that meets every other Friday night at our church building. On Sundays, we invite our youth group students to participate in the worship service with the adults, as we believe in what is called covenantal worship. More info can be found here.
Where can I park?
There is street parking available all around the church building. (It should be free on Sundays, but please still check parking signs!)
Please be conscientious of our neighbors and carpool, take public transportation, or walk if possible.
