Join Us!

Welcome!

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: Called by Love, Sustained By Community, Committed to Justice

Social Justice

At First Parish, social action is where we harness our  energy-for-transformation.  We acknowledge that our physical church sits on indigenous people’s land. That we must advocate fiercely for those most affected by systemic racism, gender bias and other forms of oppression. That we must lift up and speak out for the poor and the planet. This is our calling.
