Willowdale Chapel is a nondenominational church founded in 1956. From our humble roots, we've grown to be a thriving body of 1,500 people. Today we are one church in two locations, with campuses in Kennett Square and Jennersville. We're passionate about Jesus and his Gospel, which offers the grace we all need every day. Whether they're longtime followers of Christ or just trying to figure it out for the first time, we love meeting people where they are and helping them grow in their faith.
We have all the core ministries that most churches have — children, youth and adult small groups — along with some "specialty" ministries that meet particular needs we sometimes face. Three of those — Celebrate Recovery, Re|engage (marriage) and Special Needs — offer distinctive help for some during the biggest challenges of their lives.
God intends to make all things new. That's why he sends us into the world with a gospel that touches—and begins to transform—all of life. Thus our Outreach Ministries are built on three pillars: Gospel Proclamation, Justice & Mercy, and Cultural Engagement. We organize around these key priorities to give full expression to God's love for the world.
We are excited to announce we will be hosting our first in-person Night to Shine since 2020! This unforgettable prom-night experience is centered on God’s love for people with special needs ages 14 and older. Night to shine is a night for our honored guests to shine, the volunteers to shine, the churches to shine, and most importantly, God to shine!
Willowdale will host Night to Shine, sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation on February 10, 2023 at our Kennett Campus. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. to begin the check-in process. The prom will start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9:00 p.m. Registration for Guests is open. We look forward to seeing many of you in-person but understand that some of you are in need of attending virtually. Please register for the experience that is best suitable to you!
