Our Facility

At First Congregational Church of Danbury we are blessed with a beautiful sanctuary – as you can see from our picture gallery.  It holds 450 people and the acoustics are exceptional – important since we have a wonderful 1959 Aeolian-Skinner organ and a Knable grand piano. 

Our Philosophy

We feel strongly about the need to provide a meeting place for the community to come together.  As an urban church, we should be the place where community voices can be heard and where people get help to overcome the many obstacles we face today:

  • Just what is it we should be doing about immigration and homelessness from a faith and values perspective? 
  • Is it possible for everyone to have healthcare without the country going broke?   
  • What does the Bible say about alternative lifestyles and making of war?  
  • Is the pollution problem just junk science or do we need to do something?


There are many people working on these questions from the political perspective but in downtown Danbury, we are becoming a major forum for examining these questions from a religious and moral perspective. Sign up for E-Tidings so you can help us with sermon topics and events.  Check back with this website’s Events page to see what’s next on the schedule and join us whenever possible.  Additionally, if you have suggestions for future topics, please email them to   If we keep working together, Danbury can be an even more special.
