An ancient method of congregational non-compliance with oppressive governments is back on the rise: providing “sanctuary” within houses of worship. Many faith communities in Needham are exploring how they can support the New Sanctuary Movement either as a Level 1 sanctuary-providing congregation or as a Level 2 sanctuary-supporting congregation. This Sunday, we’ll explore the spiritual and ethical grounds for — and the practicalities of — participating in the New Sanctuary Movement.

Children attend first 15 minutes of worship followed by Religious Education Classes. Nursery are available.
