An inclusive, diverse and reconciling congregation


Welcome to First and Summerfield United Methodist Church


Welcome to the web ministry of First & Summerfield United Methodist Church, located in downtown New Haven, CT.

We hope that as you visit our website, you will get a sense of what a warm, welcoming congregation we are.  We invite all God’s people to our worship and into the life of the church. 

If you’re looking for a place to call your spiritual home, come worship with us on Sundays at 10am. Sunday School and professional child care are offered during the service.

As we journey through Lent, we are preparing for Holy Week and Easter. You are invited to join us: 

Palm/Passion Sunday worship will be held in our sanctuary at 10:00 a.m.on Sunday, April 13.

Maundy Thursday evening worship will take place at Center Church on the New Haven Green. First and Summerfield, United Church, and Center Church will join together for this service.

Easter Morning Worship will be held in our sanctuary at 10:00 a.m.

The United Methodist Men will host a fundraising Easter breakfast downstairs in Trinity Hall from  8:30 TO 9:30, with doors open at 7am for coffee and tea. The cost will be $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students, with children under 8 served free of charge. See the news page on our website for more details.

Easter Flowers: On Easter morning, our sanctuary will be adorned with Easter lilies, tulips, and daffodils. See the news page on this website for details about ordering flowers to honor or remember loved ones.

Our congregation seeks to be in ministry with all God’s people, regardless of gender, race, age, class, ethnicity, culture, country of origin, ability and disability, and sexual orientation.  Through prayer, Bible study, open dialogue, and fellowship opportunities, working together as a community of faith, we seek to encourage and challenge one another to deeper spiritual growth and stronger faith in the power of Jesus Christ to transform the world.  We invite you to be a part of this joyful, life-changing struggle, and find the support and strength you need to live the life that God has called you to live.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope to see you one Sunday soon.
