OUR CHURCH COVENANT
We gather together with freedom of conscience in a community of love and inquiry. All are welcome, without exception. We practice Christianity with faith and compassion. We covenant with one another to embody the love of Christ, to nurture contemplation and action, and to offer our gifts, talents and energies as we are able.
Worship Time: 10:00 AM
Directions: On the common in Strafford Village, 230 Justin Morrill Highway, just up from the Justin Morrill Homestead.
Our community church is nestled in the beautiful valley of Strafford, Vermont. Services are every Sunday at 10:00, with child care available. We are a diverse gathering from a variety of faith backgrounds – an extended family with official ties to the American Baptist Church and the United Church of Christ, yet with Methodist hymnals and Taize and Iona Community chant books. We have a strong and growing music program under the extraordinary leadership of Annemieke McLane–if music is important to your spiritual life, please come and sing or play or simply savor this amazing gift.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.

The United Church of Strafford began with the joining of the Free Will Baptist Church of South Strafford (organized in 1789) and the Congregational Church and Society (constituted in November 19, 1820). The reorganization of these churches began in 1948, to form one church. On December 3, 1967, the two churches dissolved themselves as individual entities in order to allow their membership to form a new, united church.
