Introducing the First Parish Podcast!

by | Dec 4, 2014

What is a Podcast and Why do I want to subscribe?

For many years, the weekly Sermon has been audio recorded and available to listen to through a link on our website. This year, we have made the weekly Sermons available, not only on the website, but in the form of a Podcast.

So what is a Podcast?

A podcast is like a radio show on the internet. The best part is that you can listen to the “show” anytime. For First Parish, it is a way to make the weekly sermon available to those who cannot attend the service (RE teachers, vacationers, etc) as well as folks looking for inspiring sermons on the internet.

How do I listen to it?

You do not have to have an iPod to listen to a podcast. You can use your Mac or Windows computer, a tablet, or your smartphone. You can listen to all or part of a podcast at any time.

How do I get more Sermons?

Sermons are typically uploaded to our website/iTunes at the beginning of the week. Every time a Sermon is added to our site, it will automatically be delivered to any device connected to that iTunes account.

Here are the steps:

  • Go to the iTunes Store on your computer (found in iTunes) or any hand-held device (in the iTunes app)
  • In the search bar enter “uuneedham”
  • Scroll down until you see the First Parish chalice image under Podcasts
  • Click Subscribe


From now on, you will receive all added Sermons. You will also see previous sermons going back to mid-summer of 2014.

Here is a very short video that demonstrated subscribing to a podcast. Enjoy!
