Swedenborgian Church is a Swedenborgian church significant for its architecture in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco, California. It is regarded as one of California's earliest pure Arts and Crafts buildings. The first pastor of the church the Reverend Joseph Worcester bought the land and worked with the architects to design the church. Among those who, in addition to Worcester, contributed to the plans, were A. C. Schweinfurth, A. Page Brown, Bernard Maybeck, William Keith, and Bruce Porter. The Church opened its doors for worship March 17, 1895.
It remains essentially the same as when it was built.
