Come, Come Whoever You Are

Welcome! We are a singing, caring, laughing, learning, justice-seeking people. We hope you will find here among us a spiritual home. Our 300 year old building is the golden yellow church in the heart of Beverly, 225 Cabot St. at Ellis Square. We gather for worship each Sunday at 10:00 am. After the service we join together at the rear of the sanctuary for coffee and conversation. Dress is comfortably informal. We look forward to seeing you here.

Join In

If you are looking for ways to join with others to enrich your life, improve the world around you, share your joys and sorrows, have some fun, come try us out. We firmly believe that diversity enriches us all, that each has talents to share and together we can accomplish wonders.

Links to ways to become connected: sing in the Choir, holiday fair, Sunday coffee & snacks, occasional church school assistant, visiting with or sending cards to those who are ill, make a meal for someone, play at Ferry Beach, minor repairs and projects on this venerable building, join us for movie and discussion night or meditation group.

A Diverse Community

We are a community of individuals and families of many sorts. We practice a faith without dogma or creed, for we believe that we need not think alike to love alike. We affirm the dignity and worth of all people and know that each of us has a piece of the truth. By coming together to learn from each other, we become wiser, and stronger.

Some of us are gay and some of us are straight. Some of us are old and  some of us are young. Some of us are partnered and some of us are single. We are Humanists, Christians, Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans, Buddhists and Jews, among other things. As a congregation, we are dedicated to the proposition that beyond all our differences, and beneath all our diversity, there is a unity which makes us one. Bound together by that unity, our diversity enriches the life we share, and gives us strength for the work we have to do together.


Childcare for babies and toddlers is available in a nursery downstairs in Hale Hall. It is staffed by a paid sitter and a parent and you are welcome to stay with them. The minister’s office at the rear of the sanctuary is also available for restless children and parents during the service. A speaker in each of these rooms carries the service.

Some days children enrolled in Church school begin their morning with us in the sanctuary and sometimes they go directly to their class rooms in Hale Hall. There are signs at both the front and rear entrances to the church saying “Children Up” or Children Down.”
