New To First Parish Church? Welcome!

Welcome to First Parish Church United located on Westford Common. We’re glad you’re here!

We welcome all ages, all gender identities, all expressions of love, and all backgrounds. You are welcome whether you are religious or spiritual, agnostic or aethist, wondering or wandering, fearful or hopeful – or a little bit of each of these. Wherever you are on life’s journey, you are welcome at First Parish Church United!

You do not need to be a member or have ever stepped through our doors to participate in our community and work. You are invited to everything!

If you haven’t had a chance to worship with us yet, consider making that a priority. You can join us in person or virtually through our live-stream every Sunday at 10:30 AM. Lots of our members live here in Westford, but others live in neighboring towns throughout the Merrimack Valley, New England, the northeast, and the United States.

Meet our new minister, Rev. Rebecca Lockwood and learn more about our church community

Religious Education

At First Parish Church United, we recognize that each of us is on a spiritual journey that begins when we are very young and continues throughout our lives.

We believe RE classes should present religious content and knowledge with sensitivity to the diversity of belief that is present in our congregation. We encourage families to discuss the lessons with their children and help them to see the lesson through the family’s own belief structure.
