Pardon Our Appearance

Shalom United Church of Christ will be installing our redesigned website over the next week.  If you see anything peculiar, either refresh your browser or visit us again in a short while.   We are very excited about the new website and appreciate your patience during this transition.

Welcome to Shalom United Church of Christ
Shalom United Church of Christ is an independent Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, with a strong commitment to peace, justice and equality.  Sunday evening worship forms the heart of our common life. Services are at 5:30 p.m, followed by a potluck supper every Sunday, and often a second hour educational program.

We meet for worship in Pratt Hall at the First Church of Christ (Center Church), New Haven, 311 Temple Street. The entrance to Pratt Hall is on the side porch (up the driveway to the right of the Parish House).
