Zoom Church Service

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.
