First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Scituate MA is a vibrant, inclusive community of faith. We are a non-credal church stressing love, service, and religious freedom. ("Liberal" means 'free' in its theologic sense, in that your religion is about how you live, not what you believe.) Grounded in our Unitarian Universalist principles and purposes, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and we support each individual's unique search for truth and meaning.

Where are you on your spiritual journey? Wherever you are, we're curious to meet you. Join us in exploring “the big questions” and cultivating ways to live the answers amidst today’s modern challenges. Our congregation seeks ways to build community, guide our children, deepen spiritually, and to make a positive difference in the world.
Services are held on Sundays at 10:30 a.m.  Everyone is welcome. Join us for reflection, music, and fellowship — and our thriving youth program. Kids gather for RE activities shortly after beginning the service with the adults.  
Our interim minister: We welcome the Rev. Erin Splaine (she/her) as our Interim minister through 2025. She is an acclaimed UU minister with deep experience (long-settled ministries in Newton, Wayland, and other Massachusetts towns, and an Interim ministry in Hingham).
