We are a church whose worship, communal life, and outreach to the New Haven and university communities are inspired by the Biblical message of God’s redeeming love for humanity in Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Our vision is to grow and be formed in the image of Christ, to be a welcoming, loving, obedient and flourishing church that loves God and serves one another. We exist to be the presence of Christ in our neighborhood, and a blessing to the nations. We are committed to the work of racial healing, reconciliation, and justice.

We are Ecumenical

All baptized Christian believers are invited to join us in Holy Communion at the Lord’s Table. Our worship and fellowship are enriched by many different Christian traditions.
