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 resumes on September 17. 

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