After worshipping together for about seven years, we officially merged together in January of 2020. It was during this merging process that the congregation decided to maintain one building at 758 Main Street in Wilbraham as our designated house of worship. This building, built in 1969, is a modern and flexible structure, with rooms for meetings, education, a pastor/rector office and secretary’s office. The nave is filled with comfortable chairs enabling us to create service settings in numerous configurations. The building is fully handicapped-accessible as well. In 2019 replaced and expanded the asphalt parking lot and installed new security lighting.
Being in one building together, following the sale of Church of the Epiphany on Highland Avenue, Wilbraham, we came together as one congregation, in one space. The pipe organ from Epiphany was professionally dismantled, enhanced and moved to its new home on Main Street, as well as the Baptismal Font and the Lectern. We, as a blended congregation, felt this was a perfect melding of our union. It brings us peace knowing we have many beautiful and significant objects from both churches to be used weekly during our worship.
Our church home on Main Street has undergone significant upgrades over the years…we added additional educational rooms, a prep kitchen for our Sunday breakfasts each month, new flooring in the sanctuary, and a beautiful and serene memorial garden outside the doors of the sanctuary. Our entrance is a burst of color during the spring and summer months with our perennial gardens.
Our Fellowship Hall is our central area for gathering after worship. It is in this room where the love and friendship of our members shines each Sunday morning.
