The Second Church of Christ, also known as the South Congregational Church, is a historic church at 307 Main Street in Hartford, Connecticut. It is a two story rectangular brick building, fronted by an elaborate tetrastyle Greek Revival temple front, and an elaborate multi-stage tower. It was built in 1825-27 by local master builders Nathaniel Woodhouse and William Hayden, and is one of only four surviving public buildings in the city that was built before 1830. It was the third church of the congregation, which was founded in 1670.[2]

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.[1]
