Shallow Well Church


Formally known as Shallow Well Congregational Christian Church, the church was founded in 1831. We have a long tradition of faithfulness in Christ's service. Currently we have  about 300 members on roll, with an average attendance that approaches 130.

 Shallow Well might be described as a traditional congregation that is not afraid to venture into new areas of ministry. After all, our ancestors were the Pilgrims. We believe that God has called us to change the world in Christ's name. We uphold the ancient creeds of the Faith, believing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and Savior of the world.

 There's a place for you at Shallow Well. Whether you are young, middle age, or a senior citizen, you'll fit right in. "No matter where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here." We are blessed to have a broad range of people, and we seek to minister to all.

 Shallow Well will provide you with an opportunity to know Jesus Christ personally, to find the love and friendship of many who care about you, and a place to serve our Lord according to your talents.
