North Parish

North Andover, Massachusetts

We are a Unitarian-Universalist church located in the historic old town center of North Andover. We recently completed a renovation on our 173-year old Gothic-style building. The 37th church of the Massachusetts Bay colony, the church was first organized in 1645 as the First Church of Christ at Cochichawicke. This is the 5th building in our church's history.

We are a welcoming spiritual community where all are free to search for spiritual meaning in their own way. We find strength in the many forms of diversity. We actively welcome everyone. People from diverse religious backgrounds and spiritual orientations are equally embraced. Our comprehensive religious education program nurtures continued exploration through all stages of life. Through active social involvement we advocate for social justice in our local communities, our nation, and the world.
