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!
Children and Youth
- Are you interested in volunteering time in Children's Church? We are in need of adult and high school volunteers. Please click to here send a message to Karen to volunteer.
- Legos: We will be working on some building projects and we could use more Legos. Do you have a handful or even a bucket full you would like to donate?
- Children's Books: Do you have a favorite children's book to share?
- Origami: Do you know how to make a peace crane? A dove? A fish? Are you willing to teach us how to make them too?
Music at Old North Church
Rehearsals for the annual Palm Sunday Lenten Concert will begin on Wednesday, March 1st at 7:30pm in the Parish Hall. This year's repertoire will include Requiem in c minor, a stunning work, by Michael Haydn. (last performed at Old North in 2013). The young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart attended the first two performances of Haydn's Requiem twenty years before he composed his own version, which is strikingly similar! Rehearsals will take place every Wednesday evening through Palm Sunday and will include two Saturday rehearsals, April 1, and 8 from 10am-12pm. The performance will take place on the evening of Palm Sunday, April 9, at 7:30pm. All interested singers should contact Maria vanKalken at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we will be sure to have enough scores at the first rehearsal. All singers welcome!
