Quaint church that is a boating landmark. Larger than the lighthouse, entering the harbor the steeple was a focal point in locating the harbor.

We have been to Sunday AM worship several times. The old church/sanctuary are beautiful and the small congregation was very warm and friendly. Go to see the structure or to worship!

this is a gorgeous landmark in Camden. Sadly, right now, the steeple is being repaired so it's hidden by scaffolding. This is a great church for anyone looking for a place to worship

The Chestnut Street Church is in the process of being restored. There's scaffolding surrounding the steeple right now. By the end of the summer, there should be a brand new steeple.

My experience visiting this church was a very positive and memorable experience. Pastor Adam always goes out of his way to greet you, and make you feel comfortable and welcome, especially if it is your first time visiting or vacationing. The congregation is a Bible-believing...More

This is a grand church that is 200+ years old. They are raising money to repair the enormous steeple and spire. The bells toll he hours of the day. Kinda' reassuring sound that soothes the heart. Get a photo of this city icon!
