with faith-filled witness and action, mutual respect, and understanding unites for Prayer, Learning, Justice, Peace, and Stewardship of God’s Creation.

A Message from Rev. Jonathan Hopkins,
NHCC, Board President
Welcome to the website of the New Hampshire Council of Churches. we are a community of ten denominations—Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant– who come together to give witness to the prayer of Christ that “all may be one”.  Through our joint efforts we speak and act for justice and compassion for communities and people throughout NH and the world.  Living in unity we discover deep      places of common belief and seek out of those convictions to ignite enthusiasm and good works that will build a culture of wholeness and shalom.  We are supported by our member denominations, congregations, and individuals.

     We invite you from here to link onto our member communions, history, upcoming events, and Joint Statements which address pressing issues facing NH right now and right here.
     Please don’t hesitate to be in touch. We provide speakers, information on issues of interest, leadership and facilitators for groups wanting to discern the pulse of God in the public sphere.
     We would welcome hearing from you!
