Welcome One and All

The Church on the Green opens our doors to all. We aspire to be a church that feels "like home" for a first time visitor, but that offers a lifetime of opportunities to grow in faith and service. We welcome seekers and lifelong Christians, single and married people, families of all configurations and children of all ages, dyed-in-the-wool Presbyterians and those who aren't even sure how to spell P-r-e-s-b-y-t-e-r-i-a-n but want to know Christ. We are united in our desire for an authentic faith expressed in acts of compassion and service. Could we be the church you've been looking for?

While our sanctuary is closed for renovations, We worship in our Chapel, which is adjacent to the main sanctuary. The entrance is on Broad Street across from Bloomfield High School. Ample parking is available in the Board of Education lot on the corner of Broad St. and Belleville Ave. The service begins at 10:45AM. All are welcome.

50th Anniversary Events: Remember, Celebrate, Dream

2016 is the 50th Anniversary of the charter of Bloomfield Presbyterian Church on the Green, formed from the merger of four former Presbyterian churches in town (Ampere Parkway Community, Old First, Park Avenue and Westminster). Check here throughout the year for upcoming special anniversary events..

Sunday, June 12th at 6:00 P.M. - Pot Luck Supper and Movie Night.

Location: Our Parish House

After sharing a meal we will watch the movie, “A Good Dissonance, Like a Man,” which tells the story of Charles Ives, an American composer who was an organist at Old First Presbyterian Church at the beginning of the 20th century. Part of the movie was filmed in our sanctuary and many of our very own members participated. We will share some great photos of our congregation in costume.

All are welcome. Please contact the church office for additional information

LIVE NATIVITY STORY, 2015

We had glorious weather and a glorious turnout for our "Live Nativity Story” on December 18, 2015. Over 150 people accompanied Mary and Joseph on a narrated walk through the church grounds to "the stable in Bethlehem” with angels, shepherds, wise men and live animals. We warmed up afterwards in the Parish House with cocoa, refreshments and children’s Christmas craft activities. Special thanks to The Bloomfield Chorale and La Iglesia Evangelio Completo for their participation, and to Investors Bank for their financial support. .

ACTION AGAINST HUNGER Food Drive, Sunday Oct 4, 2015

In spite of threatening weather our BPGOG Food Pantry again participated in the annual, MEND, North Jersey Media Group Foundation Fundraiser. Our Food Pantry Volunteers handed flyers to customers as they entered the Stop & Shop on Franklin Street in Bloomfield from 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM. Although somewhat windy, the threatening weather did not discourage the shoppers as they contributed 650 lbs. of nonperishable food items and $143.81 in cash contributions. By mid-afternoon the overcast clouds gave way to partially sunny conditions, but the wind still prevailed. As the store has two entrances/exits, this year we shared the site with The First Hopewell Baptist Church in Newark. .
