The history of Old Greenwich is long and rich. The earliest record of our congregation is a call in 1739 to the Presbytery of New Brunswick for "supplies of preaching in Mr. Barber's neighborhood near Musconnekunk." That was us! At first we were interchangeably referred to as Mr. Barber’s neighborhood or Mr. Green's Farm; then Green’s Ridge, Greenridge, Greenage, until the name finally became Greenwich. 

One of the first supply ministers sent to preach in that log church was the frontier missionary Rev. David Brainerd. In 1775, the site of the log church and the early cemetery were abandoned in favor of the present location and the first stone church was erected. In 1835 the original stone building was replaced by our present, larger church.

In 1951, the cornerstone was laid for Memorial Hall. The great hall has a large stage at the north end of the building and a kitchen at the south. It has become a sort of all purpose room, housing such events as Sunday School classes, after church fellowship, committee meetings, Christmas pageants, and many more activities. Adjacent to Memorial Hall are the library and youth room.

Dedicated in the spring of 2004, Trinity Wing is the latest addition to the physical church. This new wing provides much needed space for Sunday School classes, committee meetings, support groups, and other gatherings. The infant's room a We are actively involved in public service and Christian Mission locally and world-wide. Offices for the pastor and church secretary are also located in this building.

Since 1973, Old Greenwich Presbyterian Church has been pleased to house the Greenwich Nursery School. The nursery school was set up by the church to serve the community. It is now governed by a separate board and subsidized by the church as a part of its local mission.

The Greenwich Cemetery predates the American Revolution, with memorials dating back to 1740. It has beautiful, historic characteristics of an early American church graveyard and nineteenth century rural cemetery. The cemetery's growth through the twentieth century affords visitors a historical cross-section of gradually changing styles of burial layout and monuments, from family plots and vertical markers to the memorial park with flush markers. The cemetery is no longer governed by the church and one need not be Presbyterian to be buried in it.

Old Greenwich's Mission

The congregation of OGPC fully embraces its responsibility to bring the word of God into the community and world. We look to be inspired and unified in our shared mission:

“To Celebrate the Love of God in All We Say and Do”

And so, with the leadership of a new pastor and secure in God’s love and guidance, OGPC approaches the unknown future with commitment that God’s will be done and that as God’s people, we can witness the power and glory of God through our own actions. In doing so, we will celebrate the love of God in all we say and do.
