We Welcome Visitors and Guests

Be part of a welcoming community

Drop by our worship, visit with friends and new friends at our refreshment and fellowship time, perhaps attend a pot luck supper, a special program or study, or maybe participate in one of our service projects.  Walk with us and be a part of the Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church (BPC) community!

Discover a community of Christian discipleship

BPC is nearly 350 years old and is on the New York State and National Registry of Historic Sites. That means we're grounded in tradition, centered in worship, called to serve, and free to aspire to new ways of "being church."  We believe that everyone is a child of God.  Jesus invites us.

We hear Jesus speak to us and grow spiritually

“Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.  Put on my yoke, and learn from me. I’m gentle and humble. And you will find rest for yourselves." (Matthew 11:28-29)

God invites everyone -- and so do we

God feeds our hunger with more than bread. God's grace is welcoming and offers meaning to our lives. If you are looking for a place to hope, to forgive and be forgiven, to find God -- a place to call home, you're welcome here!

We're all searching and in different places in our life's journey

We are always searching. We call it being "reformed and always reforming" as we experience newness of life in and from Jesus. In our tradition, joining the church matters, but we never rush you! People who join us as a new member or who transfer membership from another congregation come forward to join the church during worship.  It's a prayerful and worshipful act and you will experience God's Spirit surrounding you in that moment and as you tell the people around you and God this is your spiritual home.

Find a spiritual home in a caring community

Your new spiritual home is a caring community that promises to support you on your faith journey. Those wishing to become a member of the church may speak with the Pastor or an Elder following worship or by contacting the Church Office. When you join, you become a voting member, help elect those who serve as leaders, and even vote on whether or not to call a new pastor that has been selected by the Pastor Nominating Committee. Worship is the heart of what we do as a faith community. Serving others is how we worship when we go out the church doors.  When you join a church, you promise you will be an active part of the congregation.  Your discipleship will make a difference in your life and in the lives of others and our church will be different because you have joined it.

"The Fun/Life Connections" -- New Curriculum Theme

Sunday Church School resumes each fall the Sunday following  Labor Day with registration and an opportunity for the children and parents to meet our Christian Education Ministry members, teachers, assistants, and staff. Christian Education Director Emily Otto says the curriculum this year will emphasize “Fun and Life”, where each week Bible stories and values to live by will be connected and shared in enjoyable ways.  The Fun and Life connection will be made each week in ways our children and parents will be able to reinforce during the week.  An increased utilization of “learning centers” will greet our children as they discover Biblical values connected with Life, leading to growth in faith.

Children's Sunday School Choir

The Sunday School Choir is part of the kids' Sunday morning time together.  Organist & Choir Director Thomas White joins with the children and their teachers for a time of singing.  The Choir sings once-a-month and on special occassions.

Special Times in the Sunday School Year.

The Sunday School is involved in several of the BPC's most popular events and services.  


  • In the Fall, CE Ministry offers the whole church the Annual Hayride, Pumpkin Picking and Harvest Picnic Dinner.  
  • On Christmas Eve there is the Annual Christmas Eve Pageant and Candlelight Service. 
  • In the Spring, we have the Annual BPC Community Easter Egg Hunt, which draws many children from the surrounding community we serve, along with our own kids.  

Children - and adults alike - look forward each fall to the first day of Sunday School's "Hot Dogs & Ice Cream 'Welcome Back Sunday' Picnic!" and the Children's Day Youth Sunday and in the spring to the "Hot Dogs and Ice Cream Picnic", as the Sunday School summer break begins.  We hope you attend these fun, much anticipated events!

Frequently Asked Questions ...

What happens during Sunday School?

Following the Children's Message, children age 4 and above go with their teachers to The Parlors (next door to the main church).  There they enjoy a weekly Bible story, fun worksheets, craft items and a time of singing together.


How is the Children's Message linked to the Sunday School's weekly theme?

We welcome children in  worship anytime!  The children experience "big church" as they participate with families through the Children's Message and prior to departing to The Parlors for classes.  Pastor Peter and others offer the Children's Message.


Who are the Sunday School teachers and teacher-helpers?

Our teachers and their assistants are members of the congregation, led by Christian Education Director Emily Otto.  Several have been or currently are teachers in local schools.


How does one become a teacher-helper or teacher?

All adults and youth are encouraged to take a turn at teaching Sunday School. Teachers are provided with a supportive and easy-to-follow lesson plan. Speak with Christian Education Director Emily Otto if you are interested in teaching or helping out with crafts, reading the Bible story or other ways of being supportive of our CE Ministry. Teaching is a great way to connect across generations and learn more about the Bible.


Tell Me More about the Nursery/Childcare Room?

During worship arts & crafts materials and, periodically, worksheets are available in the Nursery for parents or care-providers. While the Nursery/Childcare Room is not currently staffed Sunday mornings, parents are invited to stay with their infants & todlers-perhaps taking turns on succedding Sundays.  The worship service is "piped" in through a speaker.  The room is located through the right front door of the sanctuary.
