About Our Chapel

The United Reformed Church (URC) is also steeped in history with links to Thomas Hooker, 1586–1647, who is considered to be one of the Founders of the State of Connecticut and Father of American Democracy. John Eliot also went out with Hooker and translated the Bible into the Massachusett language for one of the Native American people.
