Welcome to Head of Christiana Presbyterian Church
As you explore our website you’ll find a surprising community of Christian folk. We are blessed with a rich heritage, as the spiritual heirs of Scotch-Irish settlers who began gathering for worship and community enjoyment under these oak trees over 300 years ago.
And that is exactly where the surprises begin. While honoring familiar traditions, Head of Christiana is a community of faith marked by joyful variety in our worship, thought-provoking Christian education for all ages and hands-on mission outreach locally, nationally, and beyond. We also excel with caring, nurturing encouragement and support for one another as sisters and brothers in faith. Remarkable fellowship hours following worship feature tasty treats and laid-back hospitality. Surprising too is that though our membership skews towards “older” we’re not stuck there, but have embarked on several advances to bridge all boundaries and joyfully welcome a broadening band of people: young adults, people new to the area, those who left church in frustration, those who are seeking something more … something deeper.
There is one surprise you won’t find in this website, however – the gracious welcome on Sunday morning, which, it has been reported, often begins even before you get inside! Come join us on Sunday as we continue to encourage one another to see and to walk Jesus’ Way in the world.
