We are an active and vibrant church serving the north central communities of Massachusetts in and around the city of Leominster.
We welcome everyone who seeks a religious home to feed their spirit and nurture their humanity. We celebrate the power of love, the respect of differences, and the right of reason and conscience in discerning what is true and what gives life meaning.
We are proud to be a liberal faith community, rooted in a rich tradition that honors the inherent worth and dignity of all people and all religious perspectives. We are proud to be a progressively-minded church that celebrates the spiritual curiosity of children, youth, and adults. We believe all of us are called to help shape a more just and compassionate world for all people.
First Church is a welcoming congregation that embraces and celebrates the uniqueness and diversity of our members and friends. Here at First Church Unitarian Universalist, we invite you to bring your “whole self” to church – there is no reason to leave any part of yourself at the door. Rather than adhering to a particular creed, we instead follow a set of principles. We hope you take a few moments look at these principles, and if you find a personal connection to them, then we hope you will explore the blessings Unitarian Universalism can bring to your life.
As Unitarian Universalists, we believe there is much to be learned and wisdom to be shared from all of the world’s religions. So whether you identify yourself as a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Taoist, Buddhist, Humanist, Spiritualist, or any other denomination – or even if you are a non-believer – you are welcome here. Whether you are white or black, Hispanic or Asian, old or young, rich or poor, gay or straight, you are welcome here. We hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and we enthusiastically invite you to visit our church and begin to build friendships with many who share the belief in a free, open, and individual search for truth and meaning!
