The Reverend Susan Murtha
Interim Senior Minister
Welcome to First Congregational Church of Branford. If you are seeking a spiritual home and a place to join with others to make a positive difference in a world in need, we hope you will get in touch! We are a community of faith, hope and love – both on our home grounds and in the many mission fields where we serve. We are a church with a long, faithful history and a church openly exploring God’s fresh callings today, in the sure trust that the best is yet to be.
I have been serving this wonderful, diverse congregation since November 2011 as their Interim Senior Minister. A little about me …. I am a native of Connecticut, a former mechanical engineer, and the mother of a 27 year-old son who lives and works in San Francisco. As an ordained minister, I’ve served diverse churches throughout the state – rural Woodstock, urban Manchester, neighboring Guilford, and most recently, Old Greenwich. Each has been an amazing experience and, together, they have shaped the person and minister I am today. It is a joy and an honor to be leading First Congregational Church of Branford in this exciting season in their life. With all our members and staff, I welcome your spirit in our midst.
Blessings, Susan Murtha
