Worship at Wayfarers Chapel


In every human heart there dwells a longing to step back from the busyness of day-to-day life, to take time to reconnect with what is the most important, and to return to God in joy and gratitude. This longing for connection with God as we pass through our daily lives is what inspired the creation of the Wayfarers Chapel.

To learn more about how the Chapel came to be, see our Chapel History page.

Wayfarers Chapel is a haven for seekers who share Emanuel Swedenborg’s quest for a religion that interconnects all of life, and for a system that allows reasoned questioning of life’s deepest religious issues. The Swedenborgian Church encourages inquiry, respect for differences, and acceptance of other traditions of life and religion. Thus, Wayfarers Chapel, open to all who are seeking a place for meditation, spiritual renewal and refreshment, or an open and inclusive worship experience, reflects fully the philosophy of the denomination which encourages and embraces all seekers and wayfarers on life’s journey.

To learn more about Emanuel Swedenborg, see our Who Was Emanuel Swedenborg page.

To learn more about what we believe, see our Our Beliefs page.

Our spiritual community comes together in worship every Sunday at 10am and every Wednesday at 12noon. After the service many stay for fellowship, classes, discussions, special events, and to volunteer for special services and community events.
