Welcome to The Congregational Church of Austin, UCC!
    If you are looking for a small, friendly church where everyone will quickly know your name...where you'll be loved and accepted regardless of your age, class, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation...where you'll be challenged to reflect on your beliefs, acknowledge your doubts, ask your questions and grow in your faith...where God's desire for compassion, healing, reconciliation, and justice is preached...where you're given the opportunity to put your faith into action through effective volunteer and outreach ministries...then we hope to get to know you as a new friend. No matter who you are or where you are in your journey, you are welcome here.
   We are affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC), a liberal Ch

Serving our immediate community is a large part of our faith, members participate in the local food pantry sponsored by Micah 6, share the responsibility for a freeze night shelter housed in our basement and share space with LifeWorks community outreach program.
