© Christ United Methodist Church 2012 Our church became one, after many changes in location. The Noank Methodist Church on Sylvan Street in Noank combined with the Groton Methodist Church, formerly on Cottage Street. An area was chosen in between Noank and Groton City, where a new building was errected, and Christ United Methodis Church was formed. The opening service at 200 Hazelnut Hill Road, in the town of Groton, was on Easter Sunday, 1972. An addition was added in 1997 to allow us to spread our wings and reach out in spiritual growth. We recently celebrated our 40th anniversary in 2012.
