NEWINGTON – The community is invited to join the town’s oldest church in an ongoing celebration of its 300th birthday.

Newington’s Church of Christ Congregational, known simply as “The Church” when it opened in 1722, is hosting a Special Worship Service celebrating 300 years of mission in ministry on Sunday, Oct. 16 at 10 a.m.

The congregation will be welcoming guest preacher, the Rev. Darrell Goodwin that morning.

The church’s ministry has provided outreach and meeting space to many different organizations over the years, from Boy and Girl Scouts and Got Lunch Newington to Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous as well as Family Promise of Central CT.

Earlier this year the church hosted a town-wide block party and a day of fun for children.

Church of Christ Congregational is located at 1075 Main St., Newington.
