Our New England Meetinghouse, built in 1717, is one of the finest remaining examples of one of the dominant styles of church architecture of the colonial period. With its center aisle (terrific for weddings!), "pumpkin pine" pews, high pulpit, and three-sided balcony, together with its elegantly-simple clear windows and soaring wooden roof trusses, the Meetinghouse offers a spectacular and unforgettable setting for your special day. The Meetinghouse is also home to a magnificent pipe organ, manufactured and installed by Mander Organ Ltd. of London, England, in early 2005, which is available for use at your service.
The members of West Parish are delighted that you have decided to have your wedding here. The sanctuary - the 1717 West Parish Meetinghouse- comes with our blessings.
We are an Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ. In accordance with our Statement of Welcome, our meetinghouse is open for weddings to all persons, regardless of race, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability, or economic circumstance.
