Our Beginnings

Covenant Chapel REC - Original Site

Covenant Chapel began as a Bible study in the late 1960s. Emmanuel Reformed Episcopal Church in Somerville and St. Luke’s Reformed Episcopal Church in New Providence worked together to plant a work that would complete a triangle of Reformed Episcopal parishes in northern, central New Jersey.  

 

Our parish incorporated in 1968, purchased a home with a three-car garage in which the church could meet in 1970, and expanded the home to include our current sanctuary (pictured here) and fellowship hall in 1980.  We are thankful for the Lord’s provision as we seek to meet the needs of the Basking Ridge community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
