Thank you elders for an enlightening of the Moravian faith and the history of the church. They were friendly and gave an excellent lesson is the faith that I truly did not know much about except for the college in PA. Another quiet place to reflect at but also made to feel welcome.

We had the opportunity to listen to one of the church volunteers in "Home Moravian Church." It was open from 1-3 that day so make sure to check the times if that interests you. It was the highlight for us and it was free! The Moravians have such a rich history and the church is beautiful! Thank you to the... More

Knowing little of the Moravian Faith I found this small church in Old Salem very interesting, especially as the docent explained some of the history of the faith.

The church, though undergoing many updates has retained its charm and old world style. Docents are very informative about the church and the Moravian religion. Hours to see the church are limited, usually 1:30-3:30 p.m. except for services. On the grounds of Old Salem. The stained glass windows, from the early 1900's are ethereal and divine. The organ is another... More

Home Moravian Church is a beautiful church, both inside and out. The interior was refurbished just a few years ago and is very attractive. Many services are held in the church, from Sunday worship to special Easter and Christmas services to vocal and band/orchestral concerts. There are tours of the sanctuary available during the week (check for schedule).

Wonderful visit of a lovely old church. We were greeted and visited with actual church members. He filled us in on their service, traditions and the differences in the denominations. We were blessed with hearing the beautiful old pipe organ.

We entered the church on Saturday afternoon, not knowing what to expect. There was a hostess in the lobby, and a knowledgeable host in the sanctuary. He gave a wonderful, detailed history of the Moravian movement and how the church came to be there. Well worth the visit. If you're a history buff, don't miss this and you'll learn a... More

This beautiful church has much history and surrounded by historic Old Salem. This is a great place to go visit. They hold different activities throughout the year including the sunrise service for Easter.

The hours are limited for tours inside. Volunteers are knowledgeable about the history and seem to enjoy sharing the history.
