Overview:The Connecticut Conference is one of 39 regional conferences in the 1.5 million member United Church of Christ, a "united and uniting" Protestant denomination in the United States of America. Our membership descends from Congregational, Christian, Evangelical, and Reformed traditions, and dates its founding to June 25, 1957, the day the four denominations merged into one fellowship.
In our "ground-up" polity, the Conference is the regional representative for UCC churches, and Associations of those churches, in Connecticut. It provides pastoral support, placement, and other support services to the local churches, and acts as a liaison between the churches and the national denomination.
Our Mission Statement:
Created by God,
Called by Jesus Christ,
Guided by the Holy Spirit,
We are the Connecticut Conference,
the United Church of Christ in Connecticut.
We come together as Local Churches and
Members to equip one another
to proclaim the Gospel to the communities
of Connecticut and to the world
by teaching the Good News of Jesus Christ,
doing the work of reconciliation and justice,
and living faithfully in daily life. Amen.
