Great Kills Moravian Church has been serving God on Staten Island for over 125 years, since 1886! Our congregation started as a small church in Great Kills and grew with the community. The Boards decided to move “out of town” in order to expand, and so made the move up the hill to our current location at 62 Hillside Terrace. Before long the town grew to us and we strive to be a blessing to our neighborhood and community.
We are connected to the worldwide Moravian Church, a Protestant denomination that traces its roots to the reform movement initiated by pastor and scholar, John Hus, in the fifteenth century. Followers of Hus established the Church of the Brethren in 1457.
Through 550 years the Moravian Church has focused on sharing the gospel by living the gospel, inviting others to know God and the power of God’s love.
