Welcome!
Unitarian and Universalist history is a rich tapestry of spiritual, theological, practical, and social expression. It reveals a particular way of looking at the world, an "angle of vision" as Ralph Waldo Emerson expressed it, that affirms each individual's own search for truth and meaning. In the First Parish of Norwell Religious Education program, we foster each person's unique journey by providing informative and spiritually fulfilling programming. We seek to create a supportive community grounded in peace and exploration.

We believe that learning is a lifelong process. We offer a variety of Religious Education opportunities across the lifespan throughout our church year. All of our programs are free of charge and take place at First Parish unless otherwise noted. You are encouraged to take part in any program that interests you.

Our programs are designed to promote:
  • Thoughtful group dialogue and the power of healthy communication
  • Self-reflection of one's own thoughts and beliefs and an appreciation for personal growth and evolution
  • A greater understanding of Unitarian Universalism's seven guiding principles and six sources
  • Empowerment for positive social action and change

It is never too early or too late to explore, question, grow, and take action in the world! First Parish welcomes you, your questions, your individuality, and your friendship. Join us as we grow together!
