About Our Church
We’re confident that you will discover a truly warm welcome here from our growing congregation. We draw people from Bridgewater, of course, but also from surrounding towns like Brookfield and New Milford.
Ours is a Congregational church, which means it is organized basically as a democracy where most all of the decisions about church life are ultimately made by the congregation.
Our Mission Statement guides our community: “The Bridgewater Congregational Church seeks to be a Christ-centered, loving community of faith, welcoming to all, a supportive and joyful home for each individual’s spiritual journey, energetically committed to sharing God’s love through fellowship and service.”
We’re a member church of the United Church of Christ, which is a mainline Protestant denomination that emerged from the Protestant Reformation and found root in the earliest days of the American Republic. This particular congregation dates back to 1803.
