About the Ellington Congregational Church

Our Church is Fully Accessible

The Ellington Congregational Church is dedicated to ensuring every person is welcomed fully into the life of our church. 

We offer designated handicapped parking spaces in the parking lot, with a ramp leading from the parking lot to the education wing.  Wheel chair  available on premises.  An elevator provides access to our Sanctuary, Social Rooms, and upstairs office and meeting rooms.  The designated Handicapped Restroom is next to the elevator in the Social Room.  

During worship, we offer large-print bibles and  bulletins as well as alternative and wheelchair seating.

For communion, we offer grape juice and a gluten-free alternative for the communion bread.  We take care to prevent cross-contamination.

Please contact the church office, any staff member, a Deacon, an Usher, or one of the pastors if you have any other special need.  No matter who you are, or what special needs you may have, you are welcomed here.

Safe Church Policies and Procedures

As part of the body of Christ, the Ellington Congregational Church is called to follow Jesus’ example of respect for the integrity and dignity of all persons. This is summed up in Jesus’ Great Commandment to love God with heart, soul, strength, and mind, and others as ourselves (Luke:10:27).  To follow this commandment is to pursue love, safety, peace, and security for all who come within the reaches of our ministries.

The Safe Church Policies and Procedures of the Ellington Congregational Church require its members to the best of their ability, provide sanctuary for persons of all ages who are entrusted to its care. They also protect those who have responsibilities as leaders and teachers. We pray our church home will continue to be a haven free of exploitation, intimidation, abuse, misconduct and harassment of any form.
