More about us:

The Presbyterian Church in Westfield has been serving the community since 1728 (back when the area was called the West Fields of Elizabeth). The church is rooted in its deep heritage, but continues to be relevant in Westfield and the surrounding communities as a trusted partner for social services through hands on service, strong youth ministries, and a passion for building an intimate community where all are welcome.
