About Sabbath House Sabbath House, a center for sacred activism, is a diverse and welcoming community that brings spiritual practices together with actions that bring peace and hope into the world.
We offer a variety of programs that include arts and crafts (collage, writing, art and visio divina); spiritual practices (individual and group spiritual direction, Sabbath keeping, dreams); spiritual activism - conversations on topics such as racism, food and faith, and particular cultural and ethnic groups; overnight retreats; and gardening. To register, please email us or fill out the contact form on this page.
We are located in the historic manse on the grounds of Plumsted Presbyterian Church, 8 Front Street, New Egypt, NJ.
The New Worshiping Community at Sabbath House is for all who want to till and keep the Earth and join us in caring for those Jesus called "the least of these."
The Sabbath House Gardens include a Giving Garden (which supports local food pantries and those in need); the Plumsted Community Garden (which offers sunny plots for people from the community to grow their own food); a Rain Garden (a gift from Jacksonville Presbyterian Church); and perennial gardens.

We're off the beaten path - but closer than you may think! New Egypt, NJ is approximately dead-center of New Jersey and less than an hour away from all of our Monmouth Presbytery congregations.
