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.

Unless noted, all services begin at 10 a.m.

All fully vaccinated folk are welcome, and we ask that you wear a mask! 

We'll take every safety precaution in accordance with health guidelines.

If you've not received the COVID-19 vaccine, please wait to join us until after you have been fully vaccinated. It will be a joy to be together!
