BEACH SERVICES                       

During the summer (late June through end August), the United Methodist Church of Westport and Weston is one of several area churches who lead worship every Sunday at 8:30 AM at Westport’s beautiful Compo Beach.  Other participating churches include Greens Farms Congregational Church, Norfield Congregational Church, Saugatuck Congregational Church, and Wilton Congregational Church.
It’s a BYOC event — “bring your own chair.” Everyone can park for free, even if you don’t have a Westport beach sticker — just tell the gate attendant that you’re attending the church service and look for us near the cannons. The service lasts for about an hour and dress code is casual – flip-flops and shorts are fine. Please join us some Sunday for a worship service that includes music, sunshine, warm breezes, and the sound of the waves in the background. All are invited!
