First Parish in Brookline is a place of connection and growth at every age (birth through High School). The goals of programs for children and youth are to help each person develop a respect for her or his own self worth, concern for others, an enjoyment and appreciation of worship, a reverence for the sacred and all life, rich and meaningful spiritual life, and an enduring connection with Unitarian Universalism. Faith Formation classes are offered on Sunday mornings and afternoons September through June. More information


The Diversity Caucus will sponsor films and discussions throughout the year. These films will explore in stimulating, compelling, and thought provoking ways the themes of racism, immigration, and privilege in our world. The Diversity Caucus intends these films to be an important component of our multifaceted journey to develop as a thriving, welcoming, joyful, and highly supportive multicultural community.

A small group of poetry-loving individuals get together once monthly to discuss poems of their choosing. We have had poets in the group, but you do not have to be a poet to contribute to our discussions. Occasionally, members read their own poems. Our discussions are focused on finding meaning in and appreciating each poem.

Up to 10 participants / Facilitator: Sue Andrews / Dana Room
Weekdays / Contact: for details.


There's no obligation or long-term commitment required. If a title strikes your fancy, we'd be delighted to have you join us.
