College Street Congregational Church was founded July 21, 1860, by a group of free thinkers and activists brought together by issues such as slavery and women’s rights.  In 1961 we became part of the United Church of Christ, and we officially became an Open and Affirming congregation in 1994.

Today, we continue that legacy by seeking to live out Christ’s call to love our sisters and brothers through worship, service, and learning.

We are a people who like to laugh and who love music. We prefer hard questions to ready-made answers, and we’re not afraid to challenge custom and tradition. We hail from many different backgrounds and have many different views on issues of faith. In God’s love for us in all our imperfections, we see God’s grace, and we hear God’s call to share that grace with others.
