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.

Have you ever wondered how to best help hurting people? Have you been afraid of saying the wrong thing when trying to help others? You are not alone. We’ve all had those thoughts.
Fortunately, there is a resource that can help you prepare for those encounters. Rescue Academy is a program that teaches you how to come alongside hurting people. It instructs you in what to say and what NOT to say. Learn about your “unfair advantage” and how to become a “shame breaker”. Learn how to help others, while not burning yourself out.
At Willowdale, our mission to love God, love each other and love the world that Jesus, through his people, is working to restore. Rescue Academy is a program that can help you accomplish your part of that mission. Join us for five virtual sessions that will give you an opportunity to learn new skills and discuss them in breakout sessions that will enhance your learning. The course is free, a workbook is provided and you will have access to all the video content for a lifetime. If you’re interested in participating in our next Rescue Academy group, click HERE!
