Portland New Church was officially constituted on August 21, 1831, as The Church of The New Jerusalem, by a group who had begun meeting to read and discuss the writings of Emmanuel Swedenborg. The church grew slowly until 1850 when the Rev. William B. Hayden began a 25-year pastorate. During that time the church grew to 183 members and a new church was constructed on High Street. The current building, which houses the present church, was completed in April of 1910, intended as a parish hall. The denomination itself was founded in 18th century England.
