About The Bridge Building Ministry
CCGB's Bridge Building Ministry offers ecumenical and interfaith opportunities to build community through education, dialogue and advocacy. With a focus on engaging leaders, both youth and adults, from all sectors of the community in facilitated dialogue, this ministry seeks to cultivate respect and tolerance for religious, cultural, ethnic, and economic differences and foster understanding and collaborations for the betterment of our Greater Bridgeport community.
Activities focus on areas of common interest and concern. Currently we offer facilitated conversations between congregations on race and white privilege.
Bridge Building is the only provider of chaplain services to Greater Bridgeport Community Mental Health Center and is engaged in community organizing through CONECT (Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut), a faith-based advocacy organization in Fairfield and New Haven counties.
