The Windsor Avenue Congregational Church is historic church at 2030 Main Street in Hartford, Connecticut. The brick Romanesque Revival-style church building now houses the Faith Congregational Church, whose lineage includes the city's oldest African-American congregation. The current congregation has been at this location since Talcott Street Congregational Church merged with Mother Bethel Methodist Church in 1953 to become Faith Congregational Church. The building was designed by Hartford architect Samuel J. F. Thayer and built in 1871–72. The founding congregation merged with another congregation in 1954 to form the Horace Bushnell Congregational Church, which is located in the former Fourth Congregational Church building at Albany and Vine Streets.

Since its founding in 1819 Talcott Street Congregational Church has a history as an early African American church. The church is a stop on the Connecticut Freedom Trail and was listed on the United States National Register of Historic Places in 1993.
