The grounds of The United Church, The Chapel on the Hill, are rich in history and beauty. Our Chapel was constructed in 1943 as the shared chapel of the Oak Ridge, Manhattan Project community. Since then, members have done what they can to beautify these grounds. The Chapel is popular as a wedding venue due to its historic beauty and location. Learn more...
The history behind the United Church, Chapel on the Hill, helped to formulate who we are today. The Manhattan Project, of World War II, brought a great diversity of people and ideas to what would become Oak Ridge. In this born over-night, military town, religious pursuits became a melting pot of ideas which occurred inside and outside of our chapel walls, the only chapel in Oak Ridge at that time. This ecumenical process brought many people to the conclusion that there is no need for so many segmented denominations and denominational creeds. This group of people stayed at the Chapel on the Hill to continue the ecumenical experience, while many other members left the Chapel on the Hill to develop other denominational churches here in Oak Ridge. Here you can find more detail about the History of the United Church, Chapel-on-the-Hill. Learn more...
