  • Welcome to First Parish of Chelmsford!
    We invite everyone of good will to come to worship and to our community, in the fullness of who you are across age, race, gender, ethnicity, class, religious background, sexual orientation, ableness and family. We are a Unitarian Universalist congregation. While Unitarian Universalism began in the Protestant tradition, we have grown beyond our Christian roots into a non-creedal faith, welcoming of different spiritual and theological perspectives. Join us for worship, mutual care, and in service to the common good.

    Multi-platform worship continues. If you plan to attend in person, please read all the current safety rules on the Sanctuary Status page.
