Centre Village Meeting House (also known as Union Church of Enfield Center) is a historic meeting house (church) on New Hampshire Route 4A in Enfield Center, New Hampshire. The wood frame church was built in 1836 by local workmen, whose work was probably inspired by Asher Benjamin's published designs. The design was embellished, however with Greek Revival details, and also simplified in some ways in the interest of economy. The building was paid for by the subscription purchase of pews, and was used for interdenominational worship. The tower bell was acquired in 1870, funded by a special subscription. The building is little altered since its construction.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
