Darien House Tour: Homes with Heart

Special Announcement – Sunday Service

Rather than congregate in our Meetinghouse, we will now livestream our service of worship. There will be one service at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday, and a recording will be posted later. You can watch live on our FCCD Facebook page, or via Zoom from your computer or mobile device.  See complete instructions here. NOTE: This is a new Zoom link, starting March 29. Do not use the previous link.

We hope you will join us in using this technology to gather together to worship and support one another in this new way, as we go through this journey together. We are adopting the path of preemptive caution because of the power of COVID-19 to increase exponentially at this stage in the spread of the virus. We are mindful of the health and safety of our church members and guests, as well as our obligation to be good neighbors to our wider Darien community and beyond.  Please follow our Facebook page for updates and links. See full message from Senior Minister Dale Rosenberger.

The First Congregational Church of Darien

is an accepting and welcoming community where faith in Christ’s teachings makes a difference in our lives, in our homes, and in the world. We are a close spiritual family, eager to make room for new friends at worship and to get the good word out about our church and the work we do.

Whether you contemplate a new church home, seek sanctuary from the noise of daily life, or look for answers to life’s most essential and difficult questions, you are welcome here.

Where do we come from?

Our church history goes back to the 1660s, and our first settled minister, Moses Mather, was called in 1744. On the occasion of the 200th birthday of the Town of Darien, we invite you to read a lively new narrative with stories and vignettes from the history of our church and its role in founding our community.

We welcome all visitors! Have questions? Here are some answers to the questions most often asked by first time visitors. Please contact us if you’d like further information about visiting or joining.
