Rooted in History

and Alive Today

Beginning in 1457 the Moravian Church has proclaimed the gospel in all parts of the world. Its influence has far exceeded its numbers. Proud of its heritage and firm in its faith, the Moravian Church ministers to the needs of people wherever they are. The name Moravian identifies the fact that this historic church had its origin in ancient Bohemia and Moravia in what is the present-day Czech Republic.

Today there are more than one million members of the Moravian Church in the world. Most of them live in eastern Africa. Other major Moravian centers outside Winston-Salem include the Caribbean basin, South Africa, and Bethlehem, Pa.

relationships with others

Many people know Moravians from attending a Love Feast, which is a simple meal, usually consisting of coffee and a bun, that is served in community while  everyone sings together. 

This is a reminder of the importance
of serving others and our reliance
on one another in the family of God.

Serving one another, in community, is an important practice in the Moravian Church. 


Relationship with god

We connect to God in a variety of ways. Moravians have always embraced the diversity of means to connect to God especially through music.

Moravians have a heritage of creativity in our music and worship. At Ardmore Moravian we embrace that diversity and creativity.

You may come and sing a hymn from hundreds of years ago or something off the radio today. We attempt to live into the wide variety of ways we can commune with God
