Welcome to the Ivyland New Church!

Pastor - Rev. Ryan Sandstrom

Times are changing and Ivyland will continue to grow! Ivyland is a place where anyone who comes will be part of a warm and supportive congregation. We are unified in the belief that the Lord Jesus Christ is known in the Scriptures and the Heavenly Doctrine of the New Church. He is best experienced through helpful actions and caring words, essentially applying His teachings to life. I hope you take the time to explore our site, and please feel free to contact us!

Annual 5k Run/Walk - October 7

It’s that time of year when we get to enjoy some exercise, some fresh air, good food, and all while supporting Ivyland. This year we meet again at the All Aboard Café, located across from the Bryn Athyn Post Office. Parking is available on the lot of the café, though street parking is available further up the road for those who don’t mind the extra walk. Registration for this event begins at 9am, and the running/walking begins at 9:30. $20 for individuals, $50 for families. Much of our earnings from this event in the past has been from sponsors who contributed towards the cause. Sponsors can be anyone, or even any business whom you would approach personally and ask if they would be willing to sponsor you for this cause. Flyers are available at the church. You can also help spread the word on Facebook. See you there!


Bible Study - September 13, 7:30pm

On Wednesday the 13th, feel free to come to the church to our continual study of the book of Revelation. In this study we will begin Chapter 15. What does this all mean? Come and see!


Red Cross Blood Drive - October 10

Sign up online at redcrossblood.org, or walk in anytime between 2-7pm. Each pint of blood that is donated can save up to 3 lives. One small act can really go a long way!


The Life of Emmanuel Swedenborg, Jan 29

To honor Swedenborg's birthday, all are invited to stick around after church on the 29th to hear Suzy Laidlaw speak on the life of Swedenborg. Who was he? Why was he chosen to be THE revelator? What was happening in Sweden at that time? Come and learn more about Swedenborg and many details that surrounded his all important role, a role which has significantly aided the flourishing of the New Church on earth. This talk will begin at around 11:30 in the Sunday School room.
