Welcome and thank you for visiting. Due to concern for all of our health, First Parish Church is suspending all church sponsored in-person activities. We are celebrating our Sundays together on-line. Mid-week we offer evening on-line activites to bring joy and combat boredom and isolation. Click Sunday Services to learn how to connect.
We are Unitarian Universalists,
or UU's for short. We are people of all ages and walks of life who live
in Billerica and nearby
towns. We come from a variety of religious backgrounds - mainly
Christian and Jewish. We have a wide range of religious beliefs. Some
of us are newcomers, while some are long time U.U.'s. We cherish the
universal truths taught by the great teachers in every time and
tradition. We welcome diversity of religious opinion, yet we seek a
strengthened spirituality for ourselves. We want the opportunity to consider religious questions with others who are not always certain they have all the answers.
Our Mission Statement
(Diversity Statement): "This Congregation affirms and promotes the full
participation of persons in all our activities and endeavors, including
membership, programming, hiring practices, and the calling of religious
professionals, without regard to race, color, gender, physical or
mental challenge, affectional or sexual orientation, age, class,
national origin, or political affiliation."
Our summer services begin at 10:00 AM on Sunday Mornings and last approximately an hour. Join us for Fellowship Hour afterwards. Bring your favorite beverage and/or pet and participate on-line from wherever you are on life's journey. You are welcome here.
We have a strong commitment to accessibility. If you have problems with this web site please send email to Webmaster stating what is not working for you.

Summer Lay-led Services start July 12, at 10 AM
“Our Faith Calls Us. How Do We Respond to the Crisis of Our Time?” Reflections from the UUA General Assembly. Times of disaster are when fundamental changes can occur. Against the backdrop of the pandemic, we are at a critical intersection of climate change, racism, and inequality. Our UU principles are visionary, this is our moment. Join us for a discussion on actions we can take.
