WELCOME! WE’RE GLAD YOU FOUND US.

Visitors to the First Congregational Church of Guilford find a congregation that is in the act of trying to live modern life as followers of Jesus Christ.

What, you may ask, does that mean?  For us, it means

  • you are welcome here!  We are not afraid of difference–we honor it.
  • we support social justice missions in Connecticut and the world.
  • we run dynamic youth programs for all ages.
  • we keep a green church.
  • our preaching engages faith and intellect.
  • our music programs are vibrant and irrepressible!

But above all, it means… community.

Just by gathering together, we grow in faith–it’s kind of amazing how it works!  God’s love abounds!  Our walls can’t begin to contain it…

and they don’t try.

Maybe you are searching for a church to call home.  Or you might be wondering what “going to church” is like these days.   Even if you are just passing through, we’d love it if you chose to worship with us at the First Congregational Church of Guilford.

There are two services on Sunday morning: a more intimate 8:30 a.m service in the Chapel, and the bigger 10:00 a.m. service in the Sanctuary. Sunday School takes place during the 10:00am service.  Holiday services don’t necessarily follow this schedule, so check this website for times.

We’ve built this website to answer the questions visitors and newcomers often have — so explore to your heart’s content!  If we missed anything, contact us and let us know.  We look forward to meeting you soon!

An “Open and Affirming” church is a church that has made a covenant to welcome into the full ministry of the church people of all sexual orientations, be they lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT)…  For more information click here
