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.  Children's Church happens at 10am, and visitors are always welcome. 

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

Music at Old North Church

Our annual Music Sunday will take place on Sunday, May 14th and will be a service devoted to sacred jazz. All choirs will participate and there will be guest instrumentalists performing for our prelude, postlude and throughout the service. This special service of music is one of many sponsored by the Music Patrons Fund at Old North. The annual collection for the fund will be taken that day, although donations are gratefully accepted throughout the year. Our "Jazz Sunday" is intended for family worship and a great way to start off on Mother's Day. Please mark your calendars!
