You are cordially invited to participate in the worship, life and ministry of our congregation.
We are both the oldest and the youngest Presbyterian church in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The church building in which we worship was begun in 1797 and served as the home of the First Presbyterian Church of Bloomfield until 1966. In that year, our church family was born when four Bloomfield congregations, including "Old First", Westminster Presbyterian Church, Park Avenue Presbyterian Church, and Ampere Community Church, merged to form the present Church on the Green. Our congregation is a member of the Newark Presbytery and is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
Bloomfield Presbyterian Church At Worship
The most basic form of Christian service is the communal worship of God. Our mission is to worship God with enthusiasm, power and praise through the ministry of Word and Sacrament, the ministry of music, and through our common ministry of prayer and praise.
We gather for Worship every Sunday at 10:45 AM. Other services of worship are held on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunrise and other days of significance on the Liturgical calendar. The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated monthly. Child care is available during worship.
Music plays an integral part in the worship life of The Bloomfield Presbyterian Church.
The worshiping congregation is led by Pastor Ruth Boling and assisted by Adult, Family, and Bell choirs.
