About Us

The Council of Churches of Greater Bridgeport (CCGB) is 65+ member congregations of many denominations working together! We are a faith-based, non-sectarian social services agency dedicated to meeting the needs of people at risk and breaking the cycle of poverty and crisis in the Greater Bridgeport area.


As communities of faith and partners

in service, we create and sustain

A more just, healthy, and vibrant society


Collaboration – we are stronger together

Diversity – we embrace our differences

Equity – we strive for justice

Innovation – we develop creative approaches

Impact – we seek sustainable results


Founded in 1945 as The Council for Inter-Church Cooperation, the Charter of The Council states that: “The Council shall do jointly what no single communion, congregation or denomination can do alone; namely, to express through fellowship, cooperation and service the essential unity of the Christian Church.” 


Our service area is concentrated in Bridgeport and its suburbs: Fairfield, Easton, Trumbull, Shelton, Monroe and Stratford, with additional partners in Westport, Milford and other portions of Fairfield and New Haven counties.
