First Congregational Church of Canterbury


Christ Centered - Spirit Led

Our Mission

We strive to share the love of God as expressed in Jesus Christ with all people. We are a warm and welcoming congregation where the gospel of Jesus Christ has central place. Our members include persons of all ages and walks of life; we offer many opportunities to be actively involved in the life of faith. We cherish our children and youth and reach out in mission to the local community and the world.

We believe that all people are God’s children! Therefore, we welcome everyone who wants to follow Jesus in the life, leadership, and ministries of our congregation. We honor and support diverse individuals on their faith journeys--all who seek a spiritual home are welcome here.
