Our Sunday Services
Worship at the Walpole Unitarian Church promises a rich and diverse menu this year using a creative approach to sustainable ministry!
Reverend Elaine Bomford offers two services a month, and we draw from a large number of other professional and lay speakers. On the first Sunday of the month, we hold Circle Sunday service, a casual time to be together, discuss a topic, play and sing.

Sunday, March 7 – “The Johari Window,” with guest speaker Keith Penniman. In this
participatory workshop, you will gain insight into your “self” and how you relate to others, using the Johari communication “window.”
Sunday, March 14 – “Mary Magdalene in Early Christianity” The first of two consecutive Sundays devoted to one of the most fascinating and controversial figures in the Bible, Mary Magdalene, with Rev. Elaine Bomford.
Sunday, March 21 – “Living Legends of Mary Magdalene.” We look beyond the Bible to consider with Rev. Elaine Bomford “What happened to Mary Magdalene after the resurrection? How has she been pictured through the centuries?”
Sunday, March 23 – Wendy Harty will offer a thoughtful service, the topic to be announced. Please check the website.
Sunday, April 4 – “Easter Sunday.” Easter takes on renewed significance in light of recent experience, for each one of us as individuals, and as a human family. Rev. Elaine Bomford leads us in an Easter service of memory and hope.
Sunday, April 11 – “Gifts from the Garden,” led by Dorothy Grover-Read. Our gardens give us gifts, both tangible and spiritual. What will you unearth this spring?
Sunday, April 18 – “Reparations for Slavery.” Reparations have reemerged in public dialogue and, for many of us, entered into our personal sense of reckoning. With Rev. Elaine Bomford, we seek greater understanding.
Sunday, April 25 – David Ruffin will offer a thoughtful service, the topic to be announced. Please check the website.
Sunday, May 2 – Sacred Embodiment: connecting mind, body, and spirit with Glenne Fletcher.
Sunday, May 9 – Mother’s Day. No Service!
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.
Please note that due to the pandemic, we will not hold the labyrinth this year, nor will we have our holiday food sale. This is a sad thing, but we hope to be able to do both of them December.
