Overview

As Unitarian Universalists, we often like to say that where other faiths offer answers, we offer questions. In fact, our fourth principle calls for a “free and responsible search for truth and meaning;” something we take quite seriously at First Parish.

 Indeed, we believe that religious learning and spiritual exploration are lifelong endeavors that begin at a very early age and never fully finish. Since we adhere to no creed, we believe that each person’s path is a unique and beautiful thing.

In this spirit, we offer many paths for religious exploration at all ages, from our Sunday church school classes for Preschool through Eighth graders and our Youth Programs, to continuing education opportunities for adults, parent and family programms, small group ministries, and the Needham Lyceum, which brings notable speakers and topics to the broader community.
