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.
Our mission as Women of Willowdale is to Encourage, Equip and Empower women to grow in relationship with Jesus and to advance the cause of Christ at home, work, church and in our community. We accomplish this through our small groups and events. In our groups we enjoy great teaching, thought provoking discussion, prayer, relationship building, and serving opportunities. Our events are opportunities to build community, work as a team, and develop leadership skills as we grow our faith and reach others for Christ.
That’s our commission from Jesus himself. It’s one thing to learn about discipleship but another to put it into practice in community with other women. Please consider joining us for one of our women’s groups.
Our Fall women’s groups will start up again in early September 2023. Check out the links below for more information and to sign up!
If you’d like help connecting with other women at Willowdale, CLICK HERE to complete the Willowdale Connections form and someone will contact you. If you are interested in beginning a group on your own or doing a study with another woman, we’d love to help resource you! Please contact Carole Hoy for details.
Discovery Bible Groups are a core part of our Discipleship Pathway. We invite anyone to participate – whether you are new to Willowdale, new to the faith, disconnected from church community or even if you are in a group but need a reboot to join us. We find these groups to be a rich experience for new believers as well as long- time followers of Christ.
Discovery Bible Groups have groups for women, men, and couples. These Discovery Bible Groups meet at both campuses on Wednesdays from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. Please CLICK HERE for more information and to register. Our hope is that in meeting up with others in small groups we are given a little gift: A tiny glimpse into each other’s heart as together we discover who God is and how God, through His Word and by His Spirit, can transform us.
C.S. Lewis once said that “we read to know we are not alone.” That’s our vision—to provide real life stories and encouragement from other women to remind ourselves we are not alone. Our Women’s Bog is a place where you encounter togetherness. We hope you see yourself in our stories, but ultimately, we hope you see Christ in them. CLICK HERE to access our blog.
Each week we see to Encourage, Equip and Empower women to grow in relationship with Jesus and to advance the cause of Christ at home, work, church and in our community.
