The United Churches of Durham has been worshipping together for more than 78 years. We have a rich history of being a landmark church in the beautiful community of Durham, Connecticut. We are literally "the heart of Durham" with a steeple seen for miles around. Our community church is one generations have called their church home. We are full of all sorts of people from all walks of life, from many different faith journeys, all seeking to know God's presence.
Our congregation believes all people are of sacred worth, created in the image of God. We affirm God’s grace is available to all. We are in ministry for all and with all persons. We proudly proclaim “No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you're welcome here.” We grieve the recent headlines about church decisions that have caused pain to the LGBTQIA community. We furthermore condemn the recent acts of violence toward Jewish and Muslim communities. These acts of intolerance and hatred do not reflect the compassion or welcoming spirit of our congregation. Our church is a space where all are welcome to worship, praise, pray, connect, and learn.
Easter is season of renewal and resurrection. It is gathering time for familiar rituals and recommitting our life to God’s love. We invite you to come discover the peace, love, and compassion of Christ at our Holy Week and Easter Services:
