Plan A Visit

We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at Essence Place a great one!



Essence Place meets weekly on Sunday mornings at 9:30AM and 11AM. We would love to host you as our guest on at Sunday at Essence Place, 621 Farmington Ave, Hartford, CT.

Turn south on Oxford St and parking is located in the south parking lot and on-street. Just look for the Essence Place banners to guide you the right parking area.



In total, an Essence Place service is about 75-minutes in length. Services begin with the Essence Place band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screen so you can sing along and engage with the music however you feel most comfortable.

After the music portion of service is complete, one of our pastors will come out to share an encouraging and hope-filled sermon about God's continual invitation into relationship, both with God and others .

Sunday's at Essence Place are exciting, casual, and relaxed. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.

We offer activities for kids 6 months to 5th Grade.



We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at Essence Place, we make this a priority.

The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Essence Place program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in for the Essence Place Kids experience.

Kids programming is offered at every week at Essence Place for kids 6 months to 5th grade.
