About

Siloam Presbyterian Church is a vibrant African American congregation located in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. We are part of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the largest Presbyterian church in the country. Our Sunday worship services take place at 11:00 am. We are located at 260 Jefferson Avenue (at the corner of Marcy and Jefferson Avenues) in Brooklyn.

The Siloam Presbyterian Church has a long history of activism and community involvement. It was founded in 1849 by the Rev. James A. Gloucester, a former slave. During the slavery era our church participated vigorously in the Underground Railroad and escaped slaves were provided food, clothing, and refuge. John Brown stopped by the Siloam Presbyterian Church enroute to Harper's Ferry and an offering of approximately $25 was raised for him to continue his work. As far back as 1886 the church's literary society waged a campaign against segregation in the public school system, fought for the appointment of qualified black school teachers and labored to create sentiment for the passage of the 14th and 15th constitutional amendments. The militant contest for educational equality and human dignity in the late 1960s assumed national dimension and Siloam Presbyterian Church played a large role.

Our recent pastors have emphasized intergenerational worship as well as evangelism and outreach. Each week we welcome children into our facilities for scouting programs, head-start programs, Saturday School and Sunday worship experiences. Five days per week we provide help to the least likely through our Deacons Food Pantry and Emergency Shelter. For more information about Siloam, contact the church office at (718) 789-7050.
