First Church is a community of faith that is rooted and grounded in God’s love for all people. Affirming the teachings of Jesus Christ, we seek to provide a caring and open environment where diversity is welcome and all are respected as children of God.  We support and encourage one another to live our faith through service to others.

Please see our Missions page for upcoming Thanksgiving, giving opportunities.  Thank you!


This month the churches of the Central Association of the CT Conference of the UCC, are holding in prayer, the Kensington Congregational Church. Rev. Margret will include them every week in the Pastoral Prayer, and we ask that you hold them in your daily prayers.


I know we all had different ideas of what to expect by participating in Main Street USA on Saturday, October 5th.  Don Robertson made the following comments to the Missions Working Group and I think he said it best:

“In my opinion it was a rousing success.  We may get one new member out of this event – maybe two or three.  Or we may get zero.  I feel the main point was that we got out there together on a gorgeous day and had a great time meeting folks in our community.  We showed them that we are HERE on Corbin Avenue and will be if the Spirit moves them to come and visit us.”

Thank you so much to all who helped in the preparation, set-up, and participation in the event.  Your enthusiasm and devotion to First Church are an inspiration.
