“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
St. David’s is a welcoming parish committed to spreading the love of Christ. Our fellowship ministries are infused with spiritual energy and we welcome all – parishioners, newcomers, and seekers – into Christian fellowship and community, and into a sense of belonging. See below for all of our Fellowship opportunities.
Young Adults Group
St. David’s has a growing number of young adults who are active in our faith and local community. Join us for fun and fellowship together! We do monthly events (some past examples: game night, axe throwing, and more).
The Coffee Hour Ministry provides coffee and refreshments after the 9:15 am Chapel service on Sundays. This is a time where you can connect with other parishioners in a casual setting.
This ministry is currently paused.
Mothers and Their Children (MATCH)
MATCH is a subgroup of Women’s Fellowship for mothers. The group meets Wednesday afternoons during the program year for fellowship, prayer and conversation.
The Newcomer Ministry greets and welcomes guests, as well as potential and new members of St. David’s, orienting them to our community. Newcomer Dinners are held several times per year.
The Social Singles ministry is for all singles, 40+ years of age. Activities throughout the year include: dinners, picnics, game nights, trips and more. On Sunday evenings, this group meets for Bridge.
Supper Club Fellowship
This ministry gathers parishioners together at St. David’s or a parishioner’s home several times a year to enjoy food, fellowship and a chance to meet new friends. Individuals bring a meal to share.
The St. David’s Country Fair
Our annual Country Fair is the oldest continuous church fair in the state. The proceeds go to support our local and international outreach and is a ministry to the entire community.
Wine & Dine Fellowship
The members of this ministry meets in parishioner homes for Christian fellowship, a meal, and home Eucharist, shared together in a relaxed setting. This ministry is currently on pause due to COVID.
Breaking Bread Together: Small Group Suppers
This new fellowship ministry is for adults that involves meeting new people or connecting with old friends in homes over a shared dinner. Stay tuned for updated information!
At each 9:15 Sunday service in the Chapel, the Greeter’s arrive 15 minutes before and stay 15 minutes after the service to provide a welcoming smile, friendly greeting, answers to questions and a warm “handshake” to all who attend the service. Our mission is to make parishioners and newcomers alike feel that St. David’s is a welcoming and comfortable place to worship, meet new friends and get involved. Our greeters are a shining light and the first impression or a connection to everyone who walks through the doors of the Chapel.
Walk & Talk
Everyone is so busy these days that we often forget to take a little time to unwind and decompress. The Walk & Talk group will meet on the third Saturday of each month to spend an hour in fellowship, conversation and laughter. The Walk & Talk will be a guided, friendly group where you will have a chance to chat, enjoy fresh air and make new friends. During inclement weather we will meet at a local coffee shop.
This group is suspended until further notice.
Men’s Fellowship is a group of friends on a mission. We have fun together to get to know each other. We also work together to extend the goodness of the God and St. David’s Church beyond the pew. Some “Hammer & Nails” projects include refurbishing the rector of St. Gabriel’s house in North Philadelphia and various painting projects at St. James School. Believe me when I tell you that we also have fun together too – from BBQs to fishing trips to tennis. We welcome you. Join us for the fun and stay for the soul-fulfilling joy in the good works we do together.
Men’s Fellowship Breakfast
Once per month, the men get together for a breakfast provided by St. David’s, and listen to a motivational speaker. These breakfasts are held either online or in-person. Check the Events page for more information on upcoming breakfasts.
Men’s Fly Fishing
Once per year, the men’s fellowship group offers a fly fishing event at a local lake for the weekend or just for the day. Cost to be determined at time of the event.
All Parish Work Day
Twice per year, both men and women can join us for our all parish work day. This work day could include planting new trees, cleaning the church windows, or tidying up the graveyard.
The mission of the Women’s Fellowship at St. David’s is to provide opportunities for women to grow in their personal relationship with God and to support and encourage each other in their lives as Christian women.
This is done through a variety of activities. All women of St. David’s and the community are welcome to attend!
MATCH (Mothers and Their Children)
MATCH is a group for mothers to meet, socialize, and share the joys and struggles that come with being a mom. After we meet in the Youth Lounge for an hour, we head to the Undercroft to enjoy dinner together and socialize. There is childcare provided in the nursery, where kids enjoy playing with one another and are provided dinner by the nursery staff.
