South Britain - South Britain Congregational Church

History 

In 1670, seventeen families left the church in Stratford to settle along the Pomperaug River. As this settlement grew, this original area known as Woodbury was divided and Southbury was created. The people of the South Britain area petitioned the Connecticut State Assembly in 1761 to have winter services in their community. They indicated that they had to travel from four to seven miles to the Southbury Church over roads that were in bad condition. This request was granted and in 1766 the division from Southbury became permanent. In that year, a new Ecclesiastical Society was formed in South Britain, and the members agreed to meet for two months at the home of Moses Downs.


In 1770 a new Meetinghouse was built. This was replaced by our present 1825 building. Over the years a Parsonage and Parish House were purchased.

It’s all about the people. Friendly, welcoming neighbors near and far that celebrate together our love, thanks, favor, blessings, and count on each other in times of celebration and grief. Come and visit us to enjoy a meaningful sermon that doesn’t get caught up in language of “thou shall blah blah blah”... Sunday sermons come in everyday language, taking stories and lessons from the Bible and identifying how we can use these messages of love, hope and faith to apply to our lives today. Please, please, please... stay for the coffee hour afterwards. You’re going to meet some of the kindest, most giving people in town. Come just as you are, dressed up in your Sunday best or, like me most weeks, in jeans and something I can find that’s clean! Bring your coffee, a bottle of water and relax knowing it will be an hour of time well invested in happiness and peace. As a member, let me be the first to welcome you here and we hope to see you soon.
