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. 

We invite you to join us for worship on Sundays, or to any other opportunities and events we host throughout the week.  For those who are seeking communal meditation, we have a Lectio Divina group that meets every Tuesday at 9:00 am, where we meditate upon poetry paired with scriptures.  However and whenever you choose to join us, know that you are always welcome here!
