A Special Message to our Community
In recent months, we thought that the Coronavirus was putting us all through some of the most tough and testing times of our lives. We were wrong. The events of last week in Minnesota and presently across our nation are horrifying, infuriating and so deeply saddening. Black communities are hurting. African Americans in our community, including members of our own church, know that living life normally, like jogging and shopping and driving in a different neighborhood, could put themselves in harm’s way. We Norfielders must acknowledge that this fear is real and we must do all that we can to aid, support and protect our sisters and brothers.
Jesus commands us, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Norfield has a long and proud history of standing tall as the "Church on the Hill," the beacon of faith, hope, love and inclusion here in Weston. Now, we need to stand tall and together in the fight against systemic racism and injustice. We will not be silent.
Listen for the Norfield Church bell which will ring for 8 minutes and 46 seconds at 8:00pm daily. It will ring for the exact length of time that George Floyd was pinned down and killed in Minnesota on Monday, May 25, 2020. When the Norfield bell tolls, we will remember George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many other people of color who have suffered and are suffering from racial injustice in this country. When you hear the bell, ask yourself, “What can I do to fight racism?” Stand up and listen. We can’t unring a bell. Amen.
Note: Please watch for upcoming communications from Norfield’s Board of Outreach and Social Action. We are developing a plan of reflection, dialogue, education and action, and we welcome your ideas and thoughts. Please email: email@example.com. Thank you.
Blessings, All of us from the Board of Outreach and Social Action

"My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore."

Who We Are
Norfield Congregational church has been a traditional anchor in Weston and surrounding areas for hundreds of years.
Our congregation is made up of a rich tapestry, a diverse group of forward thinkers who comprise an interesting, exciting and caring group. We share a love for our community, each other, and God.
The goal of Norfield’s Youth Ministry is to reach out to all youth in Weston, Norfield and beyond, so they can experience God’s love in the faith-based fellowship of this Beloved Community.
The Ministry works to enable children to grow as Christians and empower them to share God’s love with others. With a combination of service, fellowship and fun, each group strives to create a Christian community where youth can come to know that they are loved, and learn to love themselves and others.
Norfield Church was founded in 1757 as a local place of worship and a school to provide Norfield's children with a basic education. Over the next 260 years, the church evolved into a rich, growing hub that has offered services and outreach for the greater community...

Join our Church Family
Norfield Congregational Church welcomes all people to explore the possibility of membership in our church. According to our constitution, any person who is baptized and accepts our covenant will be admitted as a member. To aid visitors to the church, we offer a series of inquiry classes. These classes typically follow worship service, and a light lunch is served.
Following the inquiry class series, new members are invited to join during Sunday worship services. During the service, prospects affirm their baptism and confirm the church covenant.
Sermons go online every Sunday at 10am
Due to the worldwide coronavirus emergency, Norfield Congregational Church worship services are not open for public gathering for the time being, but we invite everyone to join us online from home every Sunday at 10 am, and continue to engage in our amazing, vibrant community of worship.
