An Open and Affirming Congregation
All are Welcome
We are an 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 Christian community of believers, seekers, saints, skeptics and would-be followers of Jesus Christ.
Coming Up at Old North Church
We hold two Sunday worship services in our sanctuary: a contemplative service without music at 8am, and a traditional service with music at 10am. After the 10am service, coffee hour is held in the Parish Hall.

Our Vision Statement
Old North Church is an inclusive Christian Community
called to bring to life God’s love and grace
by sharing the gospel for this time and place;
extending the hospitality Christ showed;
embodying God’s love and compassion to those in need;
and growing together in our understanding and experience of the Holy Spirit at work in our midst.
