The Rocky Hill Congregational Church is a historic church at 805-817 Old Main Street in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA. It is a two story gable-roof wood frame structure resting on a brownstone foundation. It has distinctive late Georgian styling, with a projecting gabled entry section with corner pilasters, and three doorways. The central doorway is framed by engaged columns and topped by triangular modillioned pediment, while the flanking doorways are framed by pilasters and topped by an entablature and modillioned cornice. A three-stage square tower, housing a clock and belfry rises at a small setback from the projecting entry section. The church was built in 1808, and is a well-preserved example of the architectural style.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
