Who We Are

These six women escaped the storms on September 30th, to enjoy an afternoon retreat “Standing on Holy Ground” in the First Church Squantum, overlooking Quincy Bay

Wollaston Congregational Church is a small, welcoming and mutually supportive congregation housed in a large historic church within walking distance of the Boston subway system. (On the Red Line, Wollaston T station.)

We have a special ministry, hosting youth groups from around the United States, who travel into the city of Boston to serve those in need. We are grateful to the Massachusetts Department of Public Safety, who recently granted us permission to continue hosting youth groups.

At this time we are actively welcoming new members.

We were blessed with beautiful weather on On October 1st, for a first “Blessing of the Pets” on our church lawn. We had a fine attendance of dogs and one tortoise.

Several cats were also blessed in absentia during the worship service.

What people are saying …

Becky: I come to church to step out of the intense focus of the work week full of me and mine to find some quiet, some redirecting, some refreshment. I bring my stress and let it melt out of me with the melody and words during the music and prayers of the service.

Owen: When it came time to pick my Eagle Scout project, I knew where I wanted to do it. I wanted my project to benefit the church which had given me so much and had been such an important part of my childhood. When I finished my project I was very proud of it, because I had helped make the church a more beautiful and better place.

John:  My church offers me a fellowship to share communion, to sing praises and lift my burdens in prayers in a setting dedicated to God. My Church gives me comfort that we are not alone in our faith journey. God will meet us anywhere, at home, at work, at the mountain top or in the valley. But God also meets us in our church where we can be one voice in praise and thanksgiving. Worshipping together brings a special renewal of spirit that adds to my faith journey. So each week I make the journey knowing that others like myself will join together to be blessed, to share and to comfort one another.
