About The Church of the Advent

The Church of the Advent is a parish that has served the Hatboro community for over 100 years.  The church was organized in 1893 and in 1904 our beautiful Neo-Gothic chapel was consecrated.

Advent is an Episcopal Church, a tradition that has its roots in the Church of England.  Neither protestant nor Roman catholic, Episcopal worship is richly informed by ancient traditions of the Church, with an emphasis on weekly Holy Communion.  Our theology, or the ways we talk and think about God, spring from the time of the protestant reformation.  As a denomination, the Episcopal Church has a longstanding commitment to weave together worship, reason and the insights of sacred scripture in ways that inform our life in a contemporary world.
