Outreach, Mission, and Community Service

Our outreach at Union Chapel aims to meet the spiritual and practical needs of our islanders and beyond.


Food drives are held throughout the year to help provide for local families.

At Christmas we conduct a food drive with other churches for island families; throughout the year we take up collections for the Pawcatuck Food Pantry on the mainland as well as supporting an “adopted” family in New London. We reach other parts of the world by supporting islanders who have built a relationship with people and place in need. We also participate in the collections made by the UCC for relief efforts around the globe.

Senior Lunch

Senior Luncheons are a popular series at Union Chapel.

In addition we host senior lunches, museum talks, piano recitals, craft fairs, concerts and much more to support island life and provide spiritual center for our community.
