promising faithfully to watch over one another, and to delight for love to abide in our midst.

First Parish in Brookline is a caring community and sanctuary for diversity. A Welcoming Congregation in the Unitarian Universalist Association, we seek to make a place for all ages to experience and celebrate community, to teach and learn from each other in an environment guided by respect and love, and to actively work for social justice. Worship is deeply theological, musically inspired and intellectually challenging. We are united not by creed but by a belief that the human spirit needs tending and the struggle to live a moral and ethical life is transformative and essential. You’ll feel welcome here.
Our Mission Statement:
Called by Love, Sustained By Community, Committed to Justice
We strive to be a welcoming, diverse and loving congregation that nurtures spiritual growth for individuals and families, celebrates multicultural community, and works together to demand social justice, dismantle racism, and care for our living earth.

“We have made enormous progress in teaching everyone that racism is bad.
Where we seem to have dropped the ball…
is in teaching people what racism actually IS.”
