Project Details

Black Rock Congregational Church, a non-denominational church in Fairfield, CT, has undergone many renovations and additions to accommodate its growing congregation.   In 2014 the original church, at 33,010 square feet and with 550 seats, was demolished to make way for a new church.

During the demolition, all but two of the original glulam arches of the sanctuary were demolished to make way for the new church. These two arches form the base of the new Welcome Center in front of the 950-seat Worship Center.   In all, the building is 53,000 square feet and includes a K-12 Education Hall, a café, commercial kitchen, a prayer room and administrative offices.

The project was an AIA-CT 2014 Peoples’ Choice Award for Favorite Religious Building.

In 2019 TDEG provided structural services for the designing of a second-floor addition.   This new addition includes a new Kid’s Worship Room, an open office area, multiple private offices and additional children’s classrooms.
