We seek to awaken and ignite awareness of God’s presence in the world through the heartfelt action of a faith community who has been reaching out to care, welcoming in to embrace, and joining hands to build, since 1730. Read our full statement of vision as adopted by the members of Trumbull Congregational Church.
We believe in the Bible as the true witness to the Word of God. We affirm the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed and other creeds set forth by the ecumenical councils and rooted in the Protestant Reformation tradition. We believe an individual can have a direct relationship with God. Together, we search for a balance between freedom of thought, social justice, and commitment to the apostolic faith.
We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ. Our polity is Congregational, which means that every member of the church has a say in the governance, mission and ministry of our local congregation. Our church is an autonomous worshiping body in a covenant relationship with other congregations of the Fairfield East Association of the Connecticut Conference of the United Church of Christ.
In 1730, our church held its inaugural service at Pulpit Rock on White Plains Road. The first meeting house was erected for what was then a thirty-eight person congregation from North Stratford at the corner of White Plains and Unity roads. Our current building was dedicated on May 11, 1899. Over forty pastors have been called to serve our church since 1730. Read more about our history here.
Worship is our primary act as a church. It is here that we receive the Good News of Christ and offer ourselves in service to God.
