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. Our June worship includes guest minister, Rev. Mimi Hollister Gardner on June 4, to celebrate Pentecost with the Sacrament of Communion. On June 11, we welcome Rabbi David Meyer from Temple Emmanuel for our annual pulpit exchange, where he and Rev. Dennis Calhoun will speak about the interfaith trip to Israel in February. June 11 is also the last day of Children's Church. Father's Day is June 18th, and after the 10am service, our Men's Group are hosting a Pig Roast in our parking lot! June 25 marks the day when our summer 8am services will begin out at the Chandler Hovey Lighthouse, and the 10am will remain in our sanctuary.

Our Sunday School turned 200 years old on May 18th, 2017! Twenty five of us gathered on the front steps of the church to celebrate with balloons and a special litany of blessing. We listened to a time-line of what was happening in 1817, and rung the church bell in blessing. Afterwards we celebrated with cake and punch. We will continue to celebrate this amazing... Read more »

We have wrapped up our Music program for the year. We are grateful for all of our choir members, children's choir participants, bell choir ringers, and our music ministry staff.

Volunteers of any age/instrument are encouraged to share their musical offerings to enhance summer worship in the sanctuary.
