The Swedenborgian Church welcomes you to Wayfarers Chapel, a spiritual center dedicated to the memory of Emanuel Swedenborg.
With its breathtaking Pacific Ocean view and original Lloyd Wright architecture, the Wayfarers Chapel was conceived as a respite for all wayfarers on the journey of life. Here all people may sit and be nurtured by the beauty of nature and enjoy peaceful meditation. No one realized that this simple idea would produce a world-renowned sacred site. The power of Wayfarers Chapel is a blend of the sacred purpose and beauty that people experience. This quiet beauty is emphasized by the openness and echoing of nature in the elegant glass structure.
Designed by architect Lloyd Wright, the Wayfarers Chapel gives glory to God by opening out on to the beauty and wonder of God’s creation. It offers a place of peace and refuge for all people, wayfarers on life’s journey, to meditate, pray and rest in the spirit. The sacredness and intimacy of the Chapel have made it a popular site for weddings, baptisms and memorial services since it first opened in 1951.
Swedenborg was a famous Swedish scientist, philosopher and theologian of the early 1700’s. His personal experience of God and spirit provides the perspective of the Swedenborgian Church. Organized in England in 1787, this Protestant Christian church believes that religion is the life we live, and the life of a religious person is to do good. The goal of The Swedenborgian Church is to support and celebrate God’s blessing with you.
The ministry of Wayfarers Chapel is committed to encouraging inquiry, respecting differences and honoring diversity in life and religion. Anyone may participate with us in worship and in celebration of rites and sacraments. Worship service is offered Sunday mornings at 10am. All are welcome
