Jersey City’s oldest burial ground and the oldest continuous congregation of Jersey City, the Old Bergen church dates back to 1660. Located atop a hill, it serves as a final resting place for the members of Dutch reformed church. The first burial took place in 1668 and the oldest remaining stone markers date back to late 1700s.
Bearing names of descendants of founding Dutch families, there are also 150 graves of American Revolutionary War Patriots including Jane Teurs.
The octagonal sandstone building is a striking piece of architecture worth visiting!

Old Bergen Church Reviews & Ratings
Old Bergen Church is starting a new After School Program which runs from 3: 00 pm to 6:00 pm! This program consists of two classes of 15 students each Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Each class is supported by a certified teacher and an intern from St. Peters University. While the program is hosted by the church which is consistently looking for innovative ways to engage its surrounding community, it is not a faith based program but rather takes a values based approach. Students will have time for homework, work on STEAM project based learning activities, be exposed to the arts, and learn more about the community they will on day grow to lead.
No pressure just go and make a space for grace.
A warm and inviting place for all to come to worship.
