First Congregational Church of Albany

Transition to a New Home

Construction on the new worship space for First Congregational was documented frequently by local newspapers:

  • February 21st 1868: "workmen began demolition of the old wooden houses on Eagle street preparatory to building the Congregational Church."
  • May 15th 1868: "ground was broken for the ereection of the Congregational edifice"
  • May 1st 1869: "The scaffolding was removed from the spire of the new Congregational Church, disclosing the tallest and on eofthe most summetrical steeples in the city."

From February 8, 1868 through October 1869, the congregation worshipped in Association Hall (then used by the Y.M.C.A.) which stood at the site of the Hampton Hotel.

Worship Service is held at 10:30am every Sunday and is followed by our Coffee Fellowship
