The Hampshire Association of Churches and Ministers was instigated by Rev. Solomon Stoddard in 1714 on the model of the Saybrook Platform. Members placed themselves under one another’s watch and care on matters of doctrine and church policy and consulted with one another when there was a breach between clergy and laity in any member church. Sessions were semi-annual. The organization has continued under various names, most recently as the Hampshire Association within the Southern New England Conference of the UCC.
