On Sunday, April 11, Vox Church held its official groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction on their new anchor location in Branford. The 27,000 square foot facility is being built on the former site of the closed Cherry Hill Bowling Lanes at 131 Commercial Parkway. The new building will serve as a central hub for the church's nine other locations across Connecticut and Massachusetts. Hundreds of church members attended Sunday's outdoor celebration, which included times of worship and prayer, a dedication of the location, and the official groundbreaking.

This Branford location will be the tenth Vox Church location opened over the last ten years. The church meets weekly at locations across Connecticut and Massachusetts, including New Haven, North Haven, Middletown, Hartford, Springfield, and Worcester. In addition to weekly services, the church also hosts ministries for kids, parents, teens, singles, and more. In 2020, Vox Church donated over $300,000 in supplies and thousands of volunteer hours to support other nonprofits across New England and the world. The church anticipates holding weekly services at the new building starting this holiday season. For more information visit VoxChurch.org.
