With a glad heart we welcome you to the First Parish of Westwood, United Church. We are a growing community; growing in size, growing in diversity, growing in programming, and growing into a deeper relationship with God and each other.
We celebrate the new ideas, perspectives and challenges this growth provides, while never forgetting the rich and solid traditions on which this Meeting House was built. We endeavor to always be prayerfully attentive to God’s call for the life and ministry of this parish, seeking to be a gathering of individuals who respect, value and care for each other and the great world.
You are invited to deepen, find or create your own space in this community. Our friendly green doors are open to all.
May God bless this family of faith!

The Sacrament of Holy Communion is offered on the first Sunday of every month. All who find meaning in the breaking of bread in Christ's name are welcome at our table.
Our worship includes praise and prayer raised to God in confidence and joy; preaching rooted in the Word of God; sacred music of high quality; dedication of our offerings and our lives; and a monthly celebration of Holy Communion. Services with Holy Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Matrimony all have their places in the total worship of our Parish. Worship is enriched by a volunteer Senior Choir and Junior Choir, choral services in Advent and Lent, and frequent use of instrumentalists and other artists and art forms. Lay members share in the conduct of our worship.
