The people of the Kirk seek to share and experience God’s love by serving others in the spirit of Christ. The Kirk of Bonnie Brae (it means church of the beautiful hill) was founded as a Congregational Church in the Bonnie Brae neighborhood in 1947. The church is affiliated with the United Church of Christ (UCC), a mainline Protestant denomination. We are descended from the Congregational churches of early New England and a merger with the Christian churches in 1931. A second merger with the Evangelical and Reformed churches took place in 1957 to form the UCC.
The Kirk is a theologically progressive church. We are self governing and committed to working together to grow in faith and in relationship to God each other and our neighbors.
