About our Events
Since March, 2020 when COVID-19 guidelines were first established, we have chosen to remain socially distant as we continue to maintain a strong sense of being socially connected. While we are temporarily refrained from hosting Sunday Service in-person, we encourage everyone to join us through our online communities on Facebook and Instagram, and subscribing to our weekly Brookside Bridge eNewsletter.
Our Reopening Task Force and the Christian Formation ministry have been working hard to develop plans and protocols to ensure the safety of the entire Brookside community as we consider how to safely worship in the Sanctuary and how to reopen our building. The health and well-being of everyone in our community is paramount. We are relying on the guidelines published by the CDC, the Governor’s Economic Reopening Task Force, the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ, the UCC Insurance Board, and the experiences of churches nationwide.
Please contact us during business hours with any questions or concerns.
A Message from our Church Minister and Church Moderator:
We can trust that God accompanies us in the most uncertain and insecure times. Our faith upholds this promise. And Jesus preaches constantly about God’s love for human beings in all situations and at all times. Please consider these words from Psalm 46:
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Come behold the works of God: “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” God of hosts is with us; God of Jacob is our refuge.”
With love and deep blessings,
Rev. Laura and Dale Trombley

Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner
You've heard of the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? How about the pot of soup? Thanks to an abundance of food at our corned beef & cabbage dinner, we were able to make some hearty, comforting corned beef & cabbage soup. Made with corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onions and beef stock. Served with soda bread. We are selling it in quarts for $10 - that can be picked up this Saturday, March 19 from 4-5:30 p.m. You can pay at the church office or purchase online here. 20 quarts available till they are gone.
Brookside Holiday Lights
Each December, Brookside presents a community light display and everyone is welcome to participate!
Partnering again with The New England Holiday Light Company, Brookside Church invites everyone to contribute to the community holiday light display. You can donate a strand or strands of lights or even a family light tree in honor or memory of loved ones, those we’ve lost, those we pray for, or those we adore.
Holiday Light Nights
Come walk in the light this Christmas season at Brookside Church at our outdoor, socially distanced light nights on Saturdays Dec. 11 and 18 from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. These light nights provide an opportunity to view thousands of lights in honor and memory of loved ones, enjoy some live entertainment, and grab some home cooked food and sweet treats to go. Walk in the light tunnel, take some magical holiday photos with a glimmering backdrop, and stroll through the light forest path to various fun activities.
