Sunday Services

A Relevant and Welcoming Service at 10 a.m. every Sunday

The First Congregational Church in Bristol was founded, along with our beautiful town, in 1680. Since that time, it has thrived and has maintained a loving, involved presence in our community.  Our congregation began what is now known as the Bristol 4th of July Parade and Patriotic Exercises!

We worship on Sunday mornings at 10 a.m. in our handicapped accessible sanctuary at the corner of High Street and Bradford Street. Our worship service always seeks to combine ancient liturgy with a modern and cutting edge message. You just never know what will happen! We use a multi-generational worship leadership model, and include songs from a variety of hymnals and a message (sermon). The service is known for being relevant, joyful and welcoming to all people. The music is uplifting and the message always communicates God’s love for us. During the service a children’s message is also shared, after which the children go to their classrooms.  Click here to find out what to expect when you visit us.

Our Christian Education program is growing by leaps and bounds, just like our congregation. Come join us and bring your friends!

After a week like yours, you need a church like ours!
