A note from the Deacons: Norfield Church welcomes all congregants to join us for in-person worship in the Norfield Sanctuary as well as online via YouTube. The Holy Spirit is truly alive at Norfield, and fills our Sanctuary every Sunday as we join our hearts together in prayer, music, faith and devotion to Jesus Christ. Please feel free to wear a mask if you choose; we will also provide masks to those who need one. To learn more visit Connecticut's COVID-19 guidelines.

Fundraising · Gathering for the first time in four years, we are excited once again to raise funds for our long-time local beneficiaries:

  • Pivot ministries
  • CIRI
  • Bridgeport Rescue Mission
  • Weston Social Services
  • Norfield Youth Ministries

Through Outreach’s Day of Giving and other volunteer activities, Norfielders provide vital one-on-one service support to those served by our beneficiaries. With funds raised from A Nite at the Races, we will be able to continue providing financial support to keep their programs thriving! With inflation and ever-growing disaster relief competition for donations, every dollar we give is a godsend!

Fun fundraising opportunity: name & “own” a horse for only $100! Name-a-horse sponsorship benefits include:

  • Name your horse and jockey to be listed in the printed race card brochure
  • Our race-night narrator will call your horse by name
  • Rooting for a very special horse! (We can hear it now: “Go! Go! Go! Grandma’s Little Darling”)
  • Check “ownership” of an actual race horse off your bucket list
  • Brainstorm with friends and family and have fun coming up with creative names! (with special appreciation for puns and nods to hobbies, professions, family members or friends joyfully accepted)
  • Every name-a-horse $100 sponsorship is fully tax deductible, as all proceeds go to our non-profit beneficiaries!!
Buy your sponsorships today — click here!

Be on the lookout for a confirmation email from Norfield Church with a short “naming form” to complete (with examples).

The cutoff for Name-A-Horse Sponsorship is April 23rd, so don’t wait!

Fellowship · What is better for the spirit than laughter and reconnecting with your community?

Everyone is welcome — please invite family and friends to join us all for a night at the races!
