First Parish Church in Plymouth is the oldest continuous church in New England.
The congregation has a long tradition of religious freedom and faith that dates back to the pilgrim landing and beyond. We trace our origin back to the year 1606 when a group of dissenters from the Church of England banded together in Scrooby. In 1620 part of the Leyden congregation set sail aboard the Mayflower, seeking the freedom to worship according to the dictates of their own conscience in the New World.
This history brings us a sense of pride and joy, but we also realize that the present and future need a fresh commitment to maintain a religion of the open mind and heart.
Freedom of belief is foundation to Unitarian Universalism. We affirm the worth of all human beings and the integrity of individual thought and action. As a liberal religious community, we share the quest for a practical religion based on deed, not creed.
Our office can be reached at 508-747-1606
Join us on Sundays at 10:00 for worship.
After church please join us for coffee, fellowship, and snacks in Kendall Hall.
We welcome all who would join with us in the spirit of love and peace.
We are a non-creedal church stressing love, service and religious freedom..

May 26 - Memorial Day: Those Not Remembered Rev. Ed Hardy
Who would we not remember; who would we leave in the field or briny deep? Whose mother’s son, or daughter dear would we not remember down the slide of time? All buried deep out of sight or left in some distant land with the natives piled in a heap. It is the song we dare not sing; it catches in the throat and always, always, always ends on a bitter note.
