Religious Worship

Our colony was founded by Prutians, who established the Congregational Church. Congregationalists were the only religious group in our colony until 1708. Most people in our colony still belong to the Congregational Church. However, we do have other Protestant religions in our colony: Methodists, Prebyterians, Anglicans and Baptists.

It is a law in Connecticut that colonists attend church services on Sunday. Church services take up most of the day. Many of our towns call people to church services by blowing a trumpet. Women sit on one side of the church and men on the other. Colonists must pay taxes to the church they attend. The taxes pay the minister's wages.
