Our progressive congregation has been established here on Church Green for 375 years. In 1637, we were a Puritan congregation. Today, here at First Parish Church we encourage and support our members to grow spiritually, treat all people with love and respect, engage with others in a free and responsible search for truth and meaning, and look for ways to give back to the world. Our mission is to - in living our faith as Unitarian Universalists - INSPIRE spiritual growth, CONNECT with one another, and SERVE the larger community in love.
We are part of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, and have a vibrant spiritual community. Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity. Our faith, which has its roots in European Christian traditions, has evolved through its centuries-long history. Today’s Unitarian Universalism is the result of the 1961 consolidation of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America.
