Who We Are:

Center Church has been a part of the Meriden community since its founders departed from the congregational church in Wallingford in the early 1700s. Established in Meriden in 1729, Center Church has been a mainstay in the community ever since. Our current building has stood since 1830 - with some renovations done along the way to be sure! If you live in the Meriden area, you've surely driven past us on the corner of East Main St. and Broad St., so why not come join us? We are so excited to get to know you and welcome you into our faith community! Check out all that we are up to on our ENews Page!

We are an Open and Affirming Church!

This means that no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, YOU are welcome here - to explore your faith, to meet new people, and to strengthen your personal relationship with God. We believe in and practice an inclusive theology that rejects the notion that ones identity can possibly be sinful, and resists bigotry and exclusive ideology.

The United Church of Christ

The United Church of Christ (UCC) is a distinct and diverse community of Christians that come together as one church to join faith and action. With over 5,000 churches and nearly one million members across the U.S., the UCC serves God in the co-creation of a just and sustainable world. The UCC is a church of firsts, a church of extravagant welcome, and a church where “…they may all be one” (John 17:21).

Online Worship:

Since COVID19 arrived in March of 2020, we have created virtual worship services online, which you can find by clicking the "Virtual Worship" picture to the left. Each Saturday at 5pm a new service will be posted! Check out our YouTube to see past services and more.

Find us in up-town Meriden!
