Welcome to First Parish in Concord
First Parish is a welcoming Unitarian Universalist congregation that seeks ways to deepen spiritually, build community, and make a positive difference in the world. We invite you to join our vibrant community of more than 1,200 adults and children whose aspirations are expressed by the benediction we speak in unison at the end of Sunday worship:
Go out into the world in peace
Hold on to what is good
Return to no person evil for evil
Strengthen the faint hearted
Support the weak
Help the suffering
Honor all beings
