Faith Community: 

Christ Presbyterian Church, New Haven is a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). As one of many communions in the church universal, the PCA may be distinguished by its affirmation of what has been described as the “Reformed system of faith” as reflected in the Westminster Confession of Faith. The PCA is characterized by its emphasis on both personal revival and theological reformation. Without revival, reformation can become “dead orthodoxy.” Without reformation, revival can result in shallow experientialism and misinformed zeal. By promoting reformation and revival, we seek to carry out the Great Commission with Biblical integrity and personal authenticity unto the glory of God.

Worship Schedule: 

Sundays (10 am) - In the morning service, we continually strive to find a balance between longstanding hymn favorites and songs that reflect a more contemporary musical language, yet meet the standards of theological richness found in the older hymns. We blend these two elements in our worship and seek to conscientiously foster an atmosphere of grace as related to different musical preferences.

After worship stay for sermon discussion or other Sunday studies opportunities followed by a catered lunch. Click here for more on worship and the full Sunday experienceFor more on our theology of worship, see handout from our Theology class. For recent sermons and bulletins click here.

Programs: 

Going Deep -A pastor-led lecture with Q&A to serve college students who want a more in-depth study of the whole Bible. We meet the first six weeks of each semester. 

Bridging the Church-Campus GapThis is our internship program for college students interested in learning more, investing more, being more knit in to the family of God. It is a great opportunity to serve, receive valuable theological training, and have practical experiences and opportunities within the church.
