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 made to bring glory to God. And we’re called to be disciples who make disciples. One of the ways we pursue and live out our discipleship is by serving those in and outside our church. No matter your age or stage there is a way and a place to serve at Willowdale. We invite you to jump in and join in the mission.
We are always looking for new volunteers. See the areas below where you can serve.
We set the stage for the gospel to be heard! From the door to your seat, our hospitality teams are the smiling faces making guests feel welcomed and loved at Willowdale! Whether we’re serving coffee, greeting new families, or finding guests seats– we make Willowdale feel like home.
Our Willowdale Kids environment is a loving and fun community, where kids actively learn what it means to follow Christ. Whether leading a small group or serving behind the scenes, there are many opportunities to use your gifts to impact the lives of the next generation.
The Production team exists to help create opportunities for the church to worship God through Lighting, Audio, Video and Media. There is no previous experience needed. Bring your skills and desire to learn to help us create excellent services each weekend!
The Worship Arts ministry offers people with all types of musical abilities the opportunity to lead our congregation in encountering God’s transformational presence in worship and we’re always looking to grow our teams. Auditions are required. Come join us!
We believe every individual is precious to God and made for a purpose. That’s why we seek to fully include individuals with special needs in our church family. We provide Respite nights for families; host an annual Night to Shine prom and provide “buddies” for kids on Sunday mornings.
WDS exists to disciple students into a relationship with Jesus and you can play a part. Whether it’s by donating food, helping with events, or leading a small group, there are opportunities throughout the week for you to show the love of Jesus to the next generation.
Do you enjoy planning or serving at events? Anything from orchestrating the plan to building the team to helping with set up or tear down. Or maybe you have panache for seasonal decorating and floral arranging is what you enjoy. If this describes you, please join our team.
We want to capture meaningful moments in the life of our church that we can share and celebrate online, on social media and during our services. If you are gifted in photography and are interested in being a part of our team, we would love for you to join us!
We desire to create an incredible first impression by offering a safe, comfortable environment for everyone from the moment they enter our property. From medical to fire safety and security issues, it’s critical to have a plan for protecting our people. Would you join us in keeping people safe during our Sunday services? No experience necessary.
