Church of the Holy City 

Front Door 2

I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, come down out of Heaven from God…

Revelation 21:2 

 We are a worshiping community that exists to help people be open to the Lord’s presence and leading.  The Bible is the foundation of our theology and a guide for our spiritual growth. We also look to the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, an 18th century scientist, theologian and mystic who envisioned a new Christianity coming into being, revitalized by the birth of spiritual freedom.  We believe this freedom invites us to approach our faith with understanding and to participate in the coming of the Holy City New Jerusalem through living lives of love and truth with one another.



The Lobster and Wreath Festival will be held on Dec. 5th and 6th.

This year, Joan Sparks & Anne Sullivan, the flute/harp duo SPARX, will join forces with Mary-beth Howard & Shelley Gnade, the storytelling duo, ByHeart on December 6th during the annual Lobster and Wreath Sale at the Church of the Holy City, 1118 N. Broom Street, Wilmington, DE.  The ensemble will perform three twenty minute segments at 12:00 noon, 1:00 & 2:00 which will feature original arrangements of tradition Christmas music & two beloved Christmas stories:  The Arthurian Legend of the Holly, & the Luke Birth Narrative.  ByHeart dresses in rich attire which reflects the stories and the holiday season.  The performances are designed for a drop-in audience: they are informal & the audience is encouraged to sit close to the performers. Children are invited to sit on the floor, if they wish.  The performance will give a taste of the SPARX concert scheduled for December 20th at 7:00 at the church of the Holy City.  The Christmas holiday will be celebrated in this performance which will feature arrangements by Scott Lavender, & the music by Busser, Bach, & Handel.
