Bridgewater Congregational church is located at 10 Clapboard Road at the corner of Main Street in Bridgewater, Connecticut.  Sunday Worship is in-person or virtual at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday.  If you would like a personal invitation to join our Zoom meeting with a link, please contact Reverend Abby Gackenheimer, our Senior Pastor, at 802-881-7760 or contact the church office by calling 860-354-8283 and leave a message.


If you have children, please bring them to the church sanctuary (the building with the steeple) and after sharing in the first part of the service, children will be escorted to Sunday school in the adjacent building, Friendship Hall. At the end of the church service, children will be reunited with parents in the Friendship Hall, where a time of fellowship takes place. Sunday school is headed by Fran Kelly, a long-time teacher of children, and wife of the church moderator.


As for the Fellowship time, it’s a great way to talk informally with our church members over tea or coffee and a few nibbles too. You’ll be warmly received.
