Welcome to First Parish Church! Whether a guest, friend or member, you are warmly invited to step into our freshly-painted historic building in the center of Beverly. You will find a congregation rejoicing in a diversity of personal spiritual journeys, an outstanding music program, and a nurturing environment for all lifestyles. We seek to lift each others’ spirits through a strong sense of community, caring fellowship, rich educational opportunities for all ages, as well as service outreach. Come and see what First Parish has to offer. We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
