Huntingdon Valley Presbyterian Church (HVPC) is a church of small groups, not a church with small groups. The Bible tells us the early church met regularly in the temple courts for worship, but they also met in each other's houses for prayer, fellowship, and study. So that's what we do.

We encourage everyone to engage with a small group to facilitate growth, maturity, and connection. This ministry is vital to the spiritual growth of the church as it provides an opportunity for folks to study the Bible more in-depth and get to know other folks in the church. We are always looking for members who are willing to host a small group or lead a group by teaching or coordinating a group.

Most of our small groups meet in the homes of members. Some meet at the church. To learn more, visit us on Sunday or contact the church office (215-947-5500,
