Sunday Worship at First Congregational Church

Due to the pandemic, we currently have one worship service every Sunday at 10:00 a.m.in the Sanctuary.  Safety protocols are being followed. The worship service is being live-streamed, and can be viewed via YouTube or our Facebook page.  Click on the Quick Links to access the service at 10:00 a.m., or at any time convenient for you.

All services are performed in English.

Under normal circumstances, our Sunday Worship is as follows:

8:00 AM Service

The 8:00 a.m. service is a Communion service, which lasts about 40 minutes. At this quiet, casual service, all join in a circle around the Communion table to share the elements of bread and grape juice. There are no hymns, music or Church School, and the offering is placed in a plate. There is a gluten-free option available.

10:00 AM Service

This service is the primary worship setting for most members. Music is offered by various choirs, soloists, bell choir, and congregational hymn singing. Communion is prepared and served by deacons on the first Sunday of each month.

Children attend the worship service with their parents for the beginning of the service each week, except for Communion Sunday when they report directly to their Church School classes.

The Confirmation Class is held prior to the 10:00 a.m. service so that the confirmands can attend worship.

The 10:00 a.m. service is recorded and is aired on local community access cable television several times during the week.

2:00 PM Ashlar Village Service

A third worship service is held at 2:00 p.m. at Ashlar Village, a Masonic retirement community in Wallingford. This service is more ecumenical in nature, as not all of the attendees are members of our church. The group refers to itself as the "Ashlar Village Community Church." Music at this service is limited to traditional hymns. Periodically, the children's musical productions are also performed at the Ashlar service.

If you can't attend our weekly 10:00 a.m. worship service, or just want to watch it again, Wallingford's public access community television station, wpaa-tv, plays the service on the following schedule:

Sunday 3:30 p.m.
