San Francisco Swedenborgian Church – Docents

In partnership with ACME Touring, the Swedenborgian Church will be offering regularly-scheduled, public tours of its historic sanctuary and gardens. These tours will provide a sophisticated, engaging, and in-depth look at the rich history of the Church, its unique cultural and architectural significance, and the fascinating legacy of its founding pastor, Reverend Joseph Worcester.
Tours will take place Fridays at 10:00am and 1:00pm, Saturdays at 10:00am and Sundays at 1:00pm.
Become a Docent, learn about the Church, and lead tours
We are currently looking for people interested in becoming part of a unique group of specially-trained docents. Would you like to welcome visitors to this very special National Historic Landmark and guide them through the sanctuary and gardens?
Are you a prospective Docent?
Do you love history, talking to people, and working in a beautiful, stimulating environment? Are you looking for new pursuits? Do you have a few hours to spare every week or two? If so, why not consider becoming a Docent at our historic church?
Docent Training
No experience is required! Docent training will be conducted in the coming weeks to educate participants on the history of the church and prepare them to lead and communicate with visitors.  We will provide you with all the necessary training to carry out your role with confidence and enthusiasm. Training will consist of classroom lessons, practice, and role-play and conclude with trial tours, presenting to fellow docents, trainers, and select church members. Although the tour route is prescribed, you personalize your own script. This allows you to cover basic information while enhancing the tour based on your own interests and passions
ACME Touring is a full-service tour production and management solution for people who take tours and for historical, architectural, and/or cultural entities that seek to provide high-quality tours to their guests. Through our expertise in tour development and docent training and management, our goal is to provide a rich visitor experience and a deep appreciation for the significance of the Swedenborgian Church.
