Welcome and thanks for visiting our website. You’ll find information here about our history, what’s happening now, and what we hope for the future.
We worship at 10 a.m. September through June, and at 9:30 a.m. during July and August. We provide nursery care for children up through age 4, and K-12 Sunday school.
We’re a “come as you are” congregation, so whether you’re in jeans or a suit and tie, come on in, find a pew you like, and make yourself comfortable.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are on life’s journey, you’re welcome here!
Snow closings: Please note that if the ConVal schools are closed because of winter storms, the church will be closed. (If there’s bad weather on a Sunday, the pastor will post on WMUR’s list in the unlikely event that the worship service is canceled.) You can check school/church cancelations at www.wmur.com/weather/closings.

April 13: Maundy Thursday worship service, 7 p.m. This will be an intimate service in the chapel, with guitar accompaniment. This is a solemn service which marks the Last Supper and Christ’s mandate for us to love one another. All are welcome.
April 14: Good Friday Tenebrae Service, 7:30 p.m. This special Good Friday service will feature a cantata, The Dark Hours, sung by both the Union Congregational and the Peterborough United Methodist choirs.

April 16: Join us for Easter worship service, 10 a.m. with bell choir and children and adult choirs accompanied by trumpets. All are welcome as we celebrate the promise of new life. Nursery care is provided.
