Some of the first words you hear in our worship are: No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here at Wilton Congregational Church. We welcome you to explore this faith community of lifelong Christians, questioners, interfaith couples, and seekers. Together we know that there is more that binds us together than tears us apart. We know that we are called to help people connect more deeply to God, to themselves and to one another. Together, we seek relevant answers to life’s challenging questions and meaning in a tumultuous world. Our church is a safe haven amidst the storm, a place to explore faith and expand perspectives, a sanctuary in which to honor and celebrate life’s most cherished moments. For us, faith is meant to be experienced - not just preached - so, we roll up our sleeves and lean in, building houses, preparing meals, restoring the environment. Join us on a sacred journey of growth, hope and fellowship. At WCC, your mind and heart are nourished as much as your soul.
Founded in 1726, the church was established on Wolfpit Road as the Wilton Parish eight years before the birth of George Washington. A decade later, the congregation outgrew that building and erected a larger one on the corner of Danbury and Sharp Hill roads. As the town spread northward and new settlers arrived, a third and final sanctuary was constructed on Ridgefield Road in 1790. Today, that building stands as the oldest meeting house still in use in Fairfield County and one of the 12 oldest in Connecticut.
Ever forward looking, we seek new approaches to living out the Gospel in relevant, contemporary ways. As our relationship with God deepens, we come to know ourselves more intimately. We open —to one another, to new ideas, to people of other spiritual traditions and walks of life. As our faith, love, maturity and knowledge expand, so does our world.While we may be at different places in our lives, we share a common belief: following Christ, we cherish all by giving hope, healing and help so that lives and communities may be transformed.
To connect with God and one another through Christ, giving hope, healing, and help so that lives and communities may be transformed.
