Welcome to Old North Church

Welcome to the Old North Church Marblehead! We are an inclusive, Open and Affirming congregation of the United Church of Christ, first gathered in 1635, but determined not to let our rich history eclipse our present and future as a vibrant, progressive community of faith. We are an eclectic congregation of believers, seekers, saints, skeptics and questioners on a journey into what God has in store. 

Please join us for worship on Sundays at 8am or 10am.  

 However and whenever you choose to join us, know that you are always welcome here!

Our Life Together


Children and Youth

Winter Wednesdays begin January 17th! This  is a new 8 week program, mid January - mid March. Although it is offered as an alternate time for Children's Church for those who may be away on Sundays, all are welcome. The content will be different than Sundays! 

The timing will work hand in hand with the Choir rehearsal times. 4th-6th grade 3:30 - 4:15, K-3rd grade 4:30- 5:15. Please note: The children do not have to participate in choir to be a part of the program.

Children's church for K-6 grade continues on Sundays.  We gather in the sanctuary, and leave for the Storytelling Tent after the Time with Children. 

Are you interested in volunteering time in Children's Church? We are in need of adult and high school volunteers. Please send a  message to Karen Kilty to volunteer  kwkilty@gmail.com
