Sunday Worship Service:

Sep 7 - Jun 21: 11:00 am | Jun 27 - Aug 31: 10:00 am 

Sacred Space

This Sunday will mark the end of our summer worship experiment in Willet Hall. We will visit one final scripture from the Hebrew Bible - Exodus 3:1-15 the story of God speaking to Moses from a burning bush. We will take a look at sacred space and think about the sacred spaces in our own lives. . . . I have spent this week getting ready to send my firstborn off to college for the first time. . . . His room is like a former shadow of what it was before. Sacred spaces seem to emerge from these bittersweet moments in life.

Fall Kick-Off September 7th

On Sunday, September 7th we'll return to our Fall schedule and gather for worship at 11:00am.  We'll also kick off our education and music programs for 2014-15, and enjoy an all-church potluck picnic. It's going to be a busy, exciting day - and we hope you'll join us! 



Summer Worship

We have just one more Sunday in our summer worship schedule. Join us August 30th at 10:00 am as we gather for an intimate and informal time of worship.  Together we will sing, pray, and share communion. Stay for lemonade and conversation following worship.

Welcome to a new year at the United Parish in Brookline! During the summer, all of our choirs take a couple of months off to allow for as much R&R as possible. Just after Labor Day, our music ministries will be charging ahead full force.

If you wander into the Corrib Pub in Brookline on a Thursday evening do not be surprised if you see a group of individuals having a drink, discussing a current event, and linking it to Biblical scripture, all while enjoying each others company.

On September 21, join your neighbors and a broad coalition of hundreds of environmental, faith, and community organizations at the People’s Climate March in New York City.
