Let's Eat


At United Parish in Brookline we love any excuse for two things: a chance to get together and a chance to eat!

Coffee & Conversation

Each Sunday before and after worship, the church comes alive with the smell of coffee, the sound of conversation, and goodies brought by members and friends. Connect with long-time friends, engage with visitors or find a quiet corner to catch up on the news. All are welcome!

Dinners for Eight

Twice a year, the Gathering Ministry Team hosts dinners (and cookouts!) for about eight in nearby homes and at the United Parish building. These gatherings offer good food and good conversation in a small group setting. Sign up when the next Dinner for Eight is announced. Everyone is welcome!


Potluck picnics allow us to make closer connections amid the smell of a charcoal grill, the sound of laughter and the taste of potato salad, hot dogs, homemade dishes and fresh baked cookies!  Picnics take place next to the church building in our own Memorial Park. There we share stories, welcome visitors and sit around picnic tables while children jump and play on our playground equipment.


Throughout the year, we gather for shared meals and time to connect and enjoy each other’s company. Potlucks are a great way to get to know someone you haven’t met before, and catch up with old friends too.
