Hello and Welcome!

The West Parish Congregational Church (WPCC) is an Open and Affirming congregation. We affirm that everyone is a child of God, created in God's image; therefore we welcome all persons of every age, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, marital status, physical and mental ability, economic status, and family structure into the life, membership, leadership and ministry of our church.

All congregants are required to wear a mask throughout their time in the building and keep a six-foot distance. For communion, the elements are available as you enter the Sanctuary.


Attendees should enter through the main door into the Sanctuary, and exit through the door to the chapel. No refreshments will be provided at this time, and individuals are asked to move outside to greet one another and the pastor. Services are available live and taped through the WPCC YouTube Channel.

WPCC Council reviews data on COVID cases regularly to adjust procedures to current conditions. For groups wanting to meeting at the church for purposes other than worship protocols are available upon request.

WPCC is proud to have a comprehensive Safe Church Policy

As a community of Christian faith, WPCC is committed to creating and maintaining programs, facilities and a community in which members, friends, staff and volunteers can worship, learn and work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, exploitation or

intimidation. For the full 14-page policy, click HERE

WPCC follows CDC COVID-19 guidelines for worship

Relationship is at the heart of the Gospel - our relationships with God, our selves, each other, and the earth. God wants us to live in communion, and to understand that we do live in communion - in connection - in relationship with all of creation. Teaching children and youth to understand what that means, and to endeavor to live that out, is the goal of our Christian Education program.
