Overview

The Arch Street United Methodist Church is an extraordinary example of Gothic Revival architecture. Founded in 1862, this striking white marble building is in excellent condition and houses a Stanbridge organ built in 1870. Arch Street was probably the first church in Philadelphia to fully integrate its membership when it welcomed participation by Roman Catholic leaders in the 1960s. The Church is also noted for its efforts to help the homeless, for starting Native American ministries, and for sponsoring AIDS awareness activities. Open sundays 8:30am onwards.
