Newcomers

Welcome. We're so glad you're here!

Visitors come to AHCC seeking renewed faith, a friendly word, spiritual refreshment, an atmosphere of understanding and acceptance, and the love of God. You are invited to explore this vibrant faith community both online and in person. Asylum Hill Congregational Church seeks to provide a culture of invitation and we hope the information provided here will help you find your way when you visit.

Getting here

Asylum Hill Congregational Church is located just west of the Hartford Insurance Company building on Asylum Avenue in Hartford. The church has a large brownstone steeple and vibrant blue doors. Click here to get directions to AHCC.

Where do I park?

There is ample guarded parking in the parking lot just east of the sanctuary and additional guarded parking in The Hartford's lots. On your first visit, you will be welcomed in our parking lot by a friendly greeter and directed to a parking space reserved for first-time visitors. 

Where do my kids go?

On Sunday mornings, there is infant care, Church School for Elementary and Middle School students available during the service. Children in church school should be dropped off in the Chapel prior to the sanctuary worship.

What do I wear?

No matter what your personal style, you'll be comfortable here. If you prefer dressy, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you no matter when you visit.

 Preschoolers and children learn while they play. We encourage hands-on play so that children are learning through all their senses. Painting and other "messy" activities are also encouraged, so use your own judgment about how dressed up your child should be for church school.

 Our Middle School age youth dress casually on Sundays.
