One church, many paths
...even spiral ones!
Come, Come, Whoever You Are!
We're so glad you found us!
The Walpole Unitarian Church is a congregation of people who have been committed and involved in the church for decades, as well as newcomers just entering our community.
We embrace a diversity of religious beliefs and practices, celebrating and honoring faith traditions that offer an abundance of common ground and richness of thought and spiritual exploration.
Our Upcoming Services:
Note: As we shelter in place, our Sunday worship will be via Zoom on-line. We will post a link here on the Saturday before the service so you can find your way to our cyber experience! For the duration, join us on a Sunday morning at 9:45 to get settled. Service begins at 10 a.m.
Sunday, May 16 – “Humor is a Saving Grace.” A morning dedicated to the humanizing, uplifting, and healing benefits of humor. Rev. Elaine Bomford shares poetry, anecdotes, and observations, as we appreciate humor's redeeming power in our lives.
Sunday, May 23 – David Ruffin will offer a thoughtful service, the topic to be announced. Please check the website.
Sunday, May 30 – “The Beauty of Graveyards.” The serenely park-like Mount Auburn cemetery in Cambridge; Paris' Père Lachaise, steeped in history; the peaceful ambiance of a country burial ground. Rev. Elaine Bomford leads our Memorial Day observance.

Spiritual Discussion Series Continues
All are welcome to join us on a Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Hastings House, followed by lunch (bring your own) at noon.
Thoughts and Meditations:
"If we can muster up that degree of commitment and get away from the uniquely American perception that if something can't be done immediately it isn't worth doing, then I think the Hunger Movement, this small but growing minority of us, can have a truly significant impact."
Meditation on Thursdays
Need a moment?
The meditation group meets every Thursday evening, from 7 – 8 p.m.
at Hastings House in Walpole. It begins with a reading followed by
silent meditation. Everyone is welcome.
What are we reading?
Our Book Club meets on a Monday of the month via Zoom at present.

The Mystics Circle is held on the second Friday evening of every month, beginning with a potluck at 5:30pm, and followed by a discussion at the Hastings Parish House in Walpole on a wonderful range of topics.
Our church and parish house offer a traditional setting for your special celebration, including weddings, anniversaries, baptisms, and child naming ceremonies, with our ministers officiating. It is also available for other group parties and events.
Our Welcoming, inclusive Congregation embraces Spiritual Exploration, Social Justice, and Love for each other and the Planet.
