Welcome To Episcopal Church Of The Advent In Kennett Square, PA
We are a congregation who join together for worship, service, and fellowship. We are proud to carry on the traditions that have made us a vibrant parish for these many years. We're also a forward-looking parish committed to making Christ visible in our community and the world. We have been servicing Kennett Square and the surrounding communities for over 135 years.
Message From our Rector, The Reverend Dr. Nancy Hauser+
Grace and peace be with you from our Lord Jesus Christ! We continue to pray, worship and support one another, even if we cannot gather. Remember our mission: Making Christ Visible; Changing Lives; Making a Difference – Together. Please do not hesitate to contact me, or the church office, if you have any questions or concerns.
At Advent, we are using ZOOM for our meetings and many Adult Christian Ed offerings. Other services are available through Advent’s Facebook page or YouTube page. Links to all the services and Adult Christian Ed offerings can be found below on this page. Blessings and God’s peace be with you all.
Winter Car Communion at Church of the Advent
Since our "Car Communion Service" was so successful for Christmas, we will continue to offer it at 9 a.m. each Sunday this winter thru 2/28/21 (weather permitting). There are 85 parking spots available for each service. Please follow the sign-up by clicking HERE and follow the instructions below.
Sign-up for ONE of the parking spots (one spot = one car) on each of the Sundays you would like to attend.
Once you have signed up for a parking spot, you will be asked how many people will be in your car.
Let us know how many people will be in your car so that we can make sure we have enough Communion wafers for everyone.
As always ~ wear a mask, use hand sanitizer and wash your hands frequently! Whether you attend services in your car or at home viewing the recorded services, we wish you a happy and very healthy 2021!

STATE OF THE PARISH PRESENTATION
STATE OF THE PARISH PRESENTATION
Given the turmoil that the Covid19 Pandemic has caused to our day to day lives, and the impact it has had on the running of the Episcopal Church of the Advent, Rev. Nancy and the Vestry thought it would be worthwhile to hold a State of the Parish Presentation to brief the Congregation on the activities that have occurred over the last ten months, and what be believe has been as successful an operation under the circumstances as could be expected.
This State of the Parish Presentation will be held via a Zoom Conference Call on January 31 at 10.30 a.m. A formal invite will be sent out to you with the information on connecting to the call prior to the event. In addition, we will be emailing (and snail mailing to those without email access) a written overview of the presentation for your review prior to the call, and for those of you who may not be able to participate on the call. The call will comprise 45 minutes of presentation by Rev. Nancy and the Vestry followed by 15 minutes for questions from the Congregation, so we hope you can find an hour of your time to join us on January 31.
The bottom line is we think Advent under the leadership of Rev. Nancy and the Vestry, together with many other unsung heroes of the Congregation providing their time and talent, have enabled Advent to operate in a financially sound fashion and provide an alternative array of worship events to replace the normal inhouse services, other worship and bible study opportunities, youth programs and outreach to the community, positioning Advent as one of the more active churches in the community.
2021 hopefully will see a return to normal operations towards the end of the year, but in the interim we will continue to try and find ways to keep your spiritual home at Advent as active and meaningful as possible, and remember we are always open to comments and suggestions from you as to how we can achieve that aim. Hope to see you on Zoom at the end of the month.
