Newtown Congregational Church, UCC
Conveniently located within a few hours from beaches, mountains, New York City, and Boston, in the pastoral rolling hills of southern New England sits Newtown, Connecticut - a town comprised of several small areas known as Sandy Hook, Dodgingtown, Hawleyville, and Botsford. A giant flagpole, positioned smack dab in the middle of Connecticut's Route 25 (Main Street) proudly proclaims to all visitors "Welcome to Newtown!"
Situated uphill from this renowned flagpole, in the heart of Newtown's historic district, is Newtown Congregational Church, a member of the United Church of Christ. The church, perched on ten acres bordered by Zelkovia, Crabapple, and Maple trees with a backdrop of woodlands, hopes that visitors find the property inviting. Our rustic, yet carefully tended memorial garden anchors the front of the property at the corner of Castle Hill Road and West Street and includes benches for quiet reflection. Walking trails meander into the woods just to the west of the church, leading to a secluded outdoor chapel and eventually up a hill to a breathtaking view that overlooks Newtown and the neighboring communities. It is here that we gather for sunrise worship every Easter to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord.
"Ask and it will be given to you;
seek and you will find;
knock and the door will be opened to you;
for everyone who asks receives;
he who seeks finds;
and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
