“Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.” (Job 37:14)

The Bryn Athyn Cathedral is situated on a hill overlooking the picturesque Pennypack Creek Valley in the borough of Bryn Athyn, Pennsylvania. It has been the central place of worship for Bryn Athyn Church and a gathering place for members of the New Church throughout the world.

The main construction of the Cathedral took place between the years 1913 and 1928 with work on the stained glass windows and interior decoration continuing into the early 1940s and beyond. The main building is Gothic, while the northern and southern buildings are in the early Romanesque style. The symbolic plan is based on the teachings of the New Church.

We welcome you to join us for worship services and special events (in person or watch live via the internet) or for visits and tours. A schedule of upcoming events and special services can be found on the Calendar page of our website.

Informal snapshots are welcome as well as building and garden photography for personal use only.  Portrait photography is not permitted.  Wedding photography is only permitted for Cathedral weddings.  Please see our Cathedral Photography Policy for more details or call the front desk during business hours, Monday-Friday, 10:00AM-4:00PM.
