Welcome Message

Welcome to The First Church in Swampscott, Congregational, a member congregation  of the United Church of Christ. It sure is a long name for a church, but it matches our long and storied history.

We are a community of Christians seeking meaning, purpose, and mission through our participation in the life of this beautiful local church. We believe that “God is Still Speaking” and has something new and essential to say to us as we live in this ever more complex and challenging world.  We don’t have all the answers, but we have some great questions. Together, we rely on the rich resources of the tradition of our Christian faith, the Bible, the revelation of God’s love in the person of Jesus Christ, and the God given gifts of each person, to lead us in our daily lives.

We would love to hear your questions, and answers too! You will find us to be a welcoming community with a sense of humor.  The Sunday worship service is the anchor of our life together, but as you visit the site you will see our passions for mission work, children’s ministry, and more – that give life to our service as the Body of Christ. We also like to eat together, laugh together, sing together, and work together.

We will set a place at our communion table and our fellowship table for you, your friends, and your family.

God’s peace and blessings to you,

Pastor Ian Holland

Staff At Swampscott Catholic Church
