Ecumenical Thanksgiving Eve Service

Brookfield’s oldest continuing town-wide ecumenical service will be held on Wednesday, November 22nd at 7:30pm at the Newbury Congregational Church, 126 Tower Rd, Brookfield.

This annual service is coordinated by the Brookfield Ecumenical Clergy group. This year Rev. Mark Nordskog, Senior Pastor, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, will deliver the Thanksgiving message.

You are invited to gather together with brothers and sisters from our Brookfield faith communities to pray, sing, and hear God’s still speaking voice as we celebrate with gratitude our great blessings. A time of fellowship and refreshment will be offered afterwards. Please join us for this special Thanksgiving Eve celebration.

An offering will benefit the Emergency Fuel Assistance Fund of Brookfield Social Services.

Worship at CCB

We invite you to attend every week,
and to invite your friends to join you.

  • Would you enjoy the guidance of fellow seekers to help you support your children's growth into strong and compassionate moral thinkers?
  • Are you looking for a place where you can bring your deepest joys and sorrows and find real companionship in celebration and suffering?
  • Do you long for a place where you and your family can learn to love one another and care for the world in a compassionate faith community?

We hope our little white-steepled meetinghouse will become a weekly refuge for your soul -- where you can join us to share gratitude and wonder for your life, and learn to use ancient spiritual resources to wrestle with your questions about the greatest mysteries of the universe.

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey,
YOU (and your questions) ARE WELCOME HERE.


We offer Communion every week at 8:30am
& on 1st Sundays each month at 10:30am.

Programs for Children & Youth

Nursery is open for both Sunday services. During the summer, we have one-room Church School at 8:30 and 10:30am services for grades K-6.  At 10:30 during the school year, there are age-graded classes for Pre-K through grade 8. Young people usually leave for their classes during a hymn early in the service, but all children are welcome to stay in adult worship if they prefer.

Thursday Morning Prayers & Bible Study
9:00 to 10:30am in the Church Library

Begin your day with a time of quiet contemplation in a simple ministry of prayer, as we lift up the names of those who are sick or grieving, who are in discernment, or have thanksgiving or celebration to share. We will have a brief Bible study of our weekly lectionary scripture texts, led by Senior Pastor Bryn Smallwood-Garcia. Join us every Thursday, or drop in as you have a need for prayer or a morning free for study.

If you would like more information, speak to one of our pastors at 203-775-1259 or e-mail the church at
